BERKELEY (AP) — The Pac-10 Conference has reprimanded California men’s basketball coach Mike Montgomery for publicly criticizing officials.

Commissioner Larry Scott announced the decision to punish Montgomery on Wednesday.

Montgomery made comments critical of the officials on postgame radio interviews following losses at Washington on Feb. 10 and Washington State on Feb. 12.

Scott said coaches should address concerns about officiating with the conference office instead of in public.
