NCAA referee is target of death threats after Kentucky loss

OMAHA, Neb. (AP) Referee John Higgins of Omaha reported he received death threats after Kentucky's loss to North Carolina in the NCAA South Regional final, a Nebraska law enforcement official said Wednesday.

Higgins' roofing company received about 3,000 harassing emails and an unknown number of phone calls, some including death threats, said Capt. Kevin Griger, investigations commander for the Sarpy County Sheriff's Department.

The Facebook page for Higgins' roofing company also was inundated with negative comments about Higgins and the quality of his company's work. Griger described it Wednesday as an orchestrated effort to "run down his Better Business Bureau rating."
