Pac-10 reprimands USC's Michael Cooper
Cooper reportedly said "[expletive] UCLA" following the Trojans' 70-63 victory over the Bruins on Sunday. The former Lakers standout and Sparks coach apologized for his comment in a letter to UCLA Coach Nikki Caldwell.
"There is no excuse for it," Cooper wrote in his apology, "and I realize it is outside the bounds of good sportsmanship."
The reprimand was issued by Pac-10 Commissioner Larry Scott.
Cooper is in his first year with the Trojans.
