INDIANAPOLIS (AP) Louisville coach Jeff Walz received a one-game NCAA Tournament suspension for comments he made toward NCAA committee members and staff at the scorer's table during the Final Four.

The NCAA issued a public reprimand to Walz on Friday.

"In the national semifinal game, I used some inappropriate language as I expressed my frustration toward the scorer's table about the officiating," Walz said. "I realize that these comments are not acceptable, did not represent the University of Louisville in the best light, and I apologize for my actions. I will be more mindful in expressing my emotions going forward. My staff and I are looking forward to another successful run next season."
