Young and Utah State's Brady Jardine went after a loose ball near the Utah State bench, with Young picking up a technical foul and Morrill yelling at the junior.
The conference warned Morrill about a minimum one-game suspension for further violations of the sportsmanship code, to which Morrill fired off his own statement.
"It was a loose ball situation, words were exchanged and my response was inappropriate," Morrill said. "I made a mistake and will work to improve my language. New Mexico State has a good team and Jahmar Young is a good player. He was called for a technical foul on the play and I now have been disciplined by the WAC. That should cover it."
