Coach fined after labelling refs three blind mice

5:47 pm on 3 November 2008

The Australian national basketball league has slapped Perth coach Conner Henry with a $1000 fine for his angry outburst following the New Zealand Breakers controversial 103-99 win over the Wildcats last week.

Henry was fuming that no action was taken when Phill Jones struck Shawn Redhage off the ball in the third quarter, labelling the referees as "three blind mice" in a television interview.

Meanwhile Jones is facing the NBL disciplinary tribunal for the hit on Redhage with a decision on Wednesday.
