Steve Alford To BYU's Jonathan Tavernari: 'You're An Asshole' (VIDEO)

On Saturday, the New Mexico Lobos visited BYU for an exciting basketball matchup that culminated in a two-point victory for the road team. But as the game ended, the real highlight began.

New Mexico coach Steve Alford ended up in a heated argument with BYU senior Jonathan Tavernari -- and the coach unloaded some direct language. It's unclear exactly what Alford said -- The Dagger has it as "I'm going to tell you good career," while ESPN.com records it as "I'm going to tell you real clear" -- but everyone agrees on his final remark: "You're an asshole."

The Mountain West Conference is looking into the incident. Scroll down for video.
