Pac-10 Reprimands UCLA's Smith For Public Comments
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. -- The Pac-10 has responded to public comments made by UCLA freshman center Joshua Smith about the officiating during last Sunday's men's basketball game against USC.
Smith has been reprimanded for his comments that were critical of the officiating.
"While we are appreciative of the fact that he has since apologized publicly for his remarks, all of our student-athletes must adhere to Pac-10 policy that prohibits them from making public comments about officiating," Commissioner Larry Scott said. "In these circumstances, Conference rules require a public reprimand."
