The Southeastern Conference will not punish Mississippi State coach Rick Ray after television replays showed him directing comments toward Mississippi's Marshall Henderson in the final seconds of the Rebels' 82-63 win on Saturday.
Henderson was checking out of the game with 6.3 seconds remaining when Ray said something as the guard walked past.
SEC spokesman Craig Pinkerton wrote in an email that Ray apologized to league Commissioner Mike Slive on Monday morning and that the commissioner "is satisfied with the way Coach Ray has handled this matter in the aftermath of his actions following Saturday's game."
Ray apologized in an Instagram message on Sunday, saying there "is no reason for a coach to ever have interaction with an opposing player, ever, regardless of the circumstances."
