UC Irvine coach Turner apologizes for remarks about player
IRVINE, Calif. (AP) UC Irvine coach Russell Turner has apologized for remarks he made about Oregon's Louis King during an NCAA Tournament game.
Turner said in a statement that referring to King as "queen" during the first half of Sunday's second-round game was "inappropriate and insensitive." Turner said following the game, which Oregon won 73-54 , that he was trying to irritate King.
Turner added that King had a couple of things to say during the game.MORE
