Wichita State University's senior associate athletics director has been reprimanded by the NCAA for getting into an argument with security at the Staples Center in Los Angeles during this year's NCAA basketball tournament.

The verbal confrontation between Darron Boatright and Staples Center security happened before Wichita State's regional final game against LaSalle. Shocker Athletics Director Eric Sexton issued a statement Wednesday saying the school accepted the reprimand and will now move on.

Sexton says Boatright immediately informed him and NCAA representatives about the incident, then went back to the security team to apologize for how he handled Wichita State's team entrance to practice that day.

The Shockers made it to the Final Four before losing to eventual champion Louisville in the semifinals.
