While this won’t do much to change the outcome of last night’s wild Kansas vs. Iowa State game, perhaps it’ll make Cyclones fans feel a little better. The Big 12 has just issued a statement in regards to the officiating during the final minute of regulation.
The Big 12 Conference acknowledges that officiating errors were made at the end of regulation during last night’s Kansas at Iowa State men’s basketball game. The plays have been reviewed and appropriate measures will be taken by the Coordinator of Men’s Basketball Officials to adjust the number of future assignments for the two officials involved in conjunction with Conference policies.
Big 12 officials are independent contractors, so basically, this means that they’ll be awarded less games to work in the future.
