Just because you lose to the Mormons doesn't mean you can joke about them.

Following a loss in the West Coast Conference tournament to Bringham Young University, University of San Francisco mens basketball coach Rex Walters had some comments for which he's made amends, according to The Deseret News.

The Dons had lost in overtime when Walters gave his opinion of the competition in the tournament, from which his team bowed out in the semifinals.

"I would say we are the best team in this tournament," the losing coach began.
