Oklahoma State All-American guard Marcus Smart knows he has a reputation in basketball circles for his acting skills when it comes to flopping, but says he isn't the one doing it.

Smart says that the officiating this season is inconsistent because of the new rules and it messes with his mind when he is playing.

"I've probably built up a little reputation, and I'm not questioning that," Smart said, via ESPN.com. "But I'm not the only one flopping. Every team and every player does it to make sure you get the call.

If they call it on one end, they have to call it on the other end. I don't blame it on anyone. It's a big adjustment for the refs also. They're learning just like us."

Smart is averaging 17.3 points per game this season for the Cowboys, who have lost four of their last five games.
