The Big 12 conference fined West Virginia head coach Bob Huggins $10,000 for his comments about the officials after last Saturday's loss to Kansas, per the Associated Press.

"I can't control what those three blind mice running around out there do," Huggins said after the 60-53 loss.

"Coach Huggins' comments following the West Virginia vs. Kansas basketball game violate the Big 12 Conference's sportsmanship policy," Commissioner Bob Bowlsby said in a statement. "Because this is Coach Huggins' third such incident, a public reprimand and a fine of $10,000 is appropriate.
