Mountain West Reprimands San Diego State Men's Basketball Player

March 11, 2012

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. - San Diego State men's basketball player Jamaal Franklin has been issued a public reprimand for violation of the Mountain West Sportsmanship Policy.

Franklin made an obscene gesture during the Conoco Mountain West Championship game vs. New Mexico at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas on Saturday, March 10. That action was in violation of MW Sportsmanship Rule 4.2-c and 4.4.3.

The Mountain West expresses appreciation for the support of the MW Sportsmanship Policy by the San Diego State administration in this matter. The Mountain West will have no further comment regarding this case. The provisions of the MW Sportsmanship Policy can be found in Rule 4 of the Conference Handbook - which can be accessed via the Web site.
