Utah athletic director apologizes for postgame tirade

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) - Utah athletic director Chris Hill has apologized for a tirade directed at a Pac-12 official following Sunday's basketball game against No. 11 Arizona State.

Coach Larry Krystkowiak had to stop mid-sentence during his postgame news conference as a man could be heard shouting and swearing from another room.

The man turned out to be Hill and he was yelling at Pac-12 coordinator of men's basketball officiating Bobby Dibler.

The Sun Devils won 79-77 thanks to a pair of go-ahead free throws with 21.7 seconds remaining. Arizona State had three players foul out and the Utes shot 13 more free throws.
