Arizona head coach Sean Miller fined $25k by the Pac-12 Conference

Going by this morning's press release from the Pac-12 offices, not everything that happens in Vegas really stays in Vegas.

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - The Pac-12 Conference announced today that it has reprimanded and fined University of Arizona men’s head basketball coach Sean Miller $25,000 for two post game incidents.

The two incidents occurred after Arizona’s loss to UCLA in the Pac-12 Tournament on Friday, March 15th. Immediately following the game, Coach Miller confronted a game official on the floor, and then acted inappropriately toward a staff member in the hallway of the arena

The incidents were related to what Miller believed to be a blown call by the refs in the 1st half of the game v. UCLA. Miller criticized the refs during his postgame press conference, but it now seems like he vented his frustrations beyond the cameras.

Speaking of that Arizona squad, Pat Forde gave them a mention in the NCAA Tournament edition of his Forde Minutes column.

THE FRAUDULENT FIVE Prominent teams that could be bounced from the Dance early:

...

Arizona (24). Seems an eternity ago that the Wildcats were 14-0. Since then they are 11-7 and have beaten just one NCAA tournament team (Colorado).

I never said that it was a good mention.

Remember that the one 'win' came through the benefit of the single worst call of the year by the Pac-12 refs, incorrectly reversing Colorado's game winning shot at the end of regulation in Tucson. The Wildcats' back half of the season was not as weak as, say Minnesota's, but gives little evidence that UA can make it out of the opening weekend (if not their first game).
