Kim Mulkey's demonstrative sideline antics and postgame verbal jabs have finally come back to haunt her.

Mulkey, Baylor's outspoken women's basketball coach, was suspended for her next NCAA Tournament game because of critical comments aimed toward officials following the Lady Bears' season-ending loss to Louisville in the Elite Eight in Oklahoma City last March.

“I'll be glad to answer any referee question you want to ask me, because I don't mind getting fined, so ask me,” Mulkey said postgame, before ranting for a few minutes.

"The NCAA Division I Women's Basketball Committee noted this is the latest misconduct act by Mulkey during the past several championships and believes a more stringent penalty is appropriate to prevent these actions from continuing," the NCAA said in a press release. "She also received a public reprimand for comments to the media following the 2011 championship. Mulkey's misconduct led the committee to issue her a one-game NCAA postseason championship suspension as well as the withholding of Baylor's team championship per diem during the regional round of play."
