Larry Brown still upset with postseason ban: 'They didn't think about SMU'

Larry Brown still upset with postseason ban: 'They didn't think about SMU'

In September, reports surfaced regarding a former SMU basketball administrative assistant completing course work for a student, resulting in a postseason ban for the Mustangs and a nine-game suspension for head coach Larry Brown.

Ahead of SMU's game against UConn on Thursday, Brown discussed the Mustangs' imposed sanctions, and he still thinks they're too much.

"What we were accused of doing, we should have gotten penalized," Brown said, according to ESPN. "Our secretary did an online course for a kid - it wasn't an SMU course, he didn't even need the course. ... To say there was a 'lack of compliance' is a big bunch of bull."

SMU started the season 18-0 and currently sits half a game back of top spot in the AAC, but no matter how the Mustangs finish, they won't be in the tournament come March.
