Pac-12 Reprimands Colorado's Miller
SAN FRANCISCO - The Pac-12 has responded to the unsportsmanlike conduct by University of Colorado sophomore forward Tory Miller during last Wednesday’s men’s basketball game against Air Force.
Miller has been reprimanded for his actions in which he bit an opponent during a dead ball situation in the game. After an in-game video review of the incident by the officiating crew, Miller was assessed a Flagrant 2 Dead Ball Technical Foul and ejected from the game.
“All of our student-athletes must adhere to the Pac-12’s Standards of Conduct and Sportsmanship,” Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott said. “Regardless of Mr. Miller’s frustration and emotion, such behavior is unacceptable and he is being appropriately reprimanded.”
Statement from Colorado’s Tory Miller:
“I would like to apologize for my actions during the Air Force game. I would like to apologize to Hayden Graham, Air Force, my teammates and fans. It was a heat of the moment thing. I’m an emotional player, but I let my emotions get the best of me. I will use this as a learning experience and focus on helping my teammates and respecting my opponents for the rest of the season and beyond.”
