San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh visited the Kansas Jayhawks’ basketball practice wearing his signature outfit. Despite the poor choice in clothing, the coach showed that he’s a multi-sport athlete by nailing a half-court shot.
Harbaugh made sure the cameraman caught it afterward.
Very proud of these guys, of how they’ve handled this. There’s been a lot of focus, both positive and negative about this team. … They’re fun to be around, and they deserve this 31-0.
Wichita State (18-0) will have a first-round bye in the Missouri Valley tournament next week.
This is the best start since UNLV began 34-0 and lost in the 1991 national title game. Wichita State is also off to the best start by a Missouri Valley team since Indiana State, led by Larry Bird, won its first 33 games and fell to Michigan State in the 1979 title game.
The Shockers reached the Final Four a year ago and have the confidence to make another deep run after going undefeated in the regular season. They also have more talent on the roster than many give them credit for as well as a solid coach in Marshall.
Normally it’s coaches who hold back players, but we saw the opposite Saturday.
Cincinnati Bearcats head coach Mick Cronin expressed his displeasure with a call during the Cincinnati-UConn game. His anger was directed at Ted Valentine, the high-profile official, and things escalated further when the coach invaded the referees personal space.
Cronin got so upset that his players held him back, and somehow avoided getting a technical.
Utah Valley State (17-10) “upset” New Mexico State (21-9) 66-61 at the UCCU Events Center in Orem, Utah on Thursday night. As the game ended, New Mexico State’s K.C. Ross-Miller threw the basketball at Utah Valley’s Holton Hunsaker.
At the same time, Utah Valley students were storming the court and what happened next probably ruined court storming for kids all over the nation. Pushing, shoving and punching happened as chaos broke out. Players, fans, coaches and officials tangled. No matter who was to blame, the NCAA has to take a stance and likely ban court storming to protect the players and prevent future incidents like this one. Who could have guessed it would be because of two unranked no-name programs.
