Boston College Coach Steve Donahue Falls Down While Complaining to Referees [Video]

Boston College has been terrible to start the college basketball season, dropping to 4-10 with a 15-point loss on the road to Harvard. Late in the 2nd half, Harvard’s Kyle Casey blocked a Ryan Anderson shot at the rim. It appeared to be a possible goaltending call, but the referees didn’t see a problem with the block. This lead Boston College coach Steve Donahue to lose it on the sideline and throw a Rex Ryan like fit. However, the fit ended with the coach falling on his butt.

Harvard’s Siyani Chambers had a rough game against Arizona. He’ll be heading back to Harvard missing part of his front tooth — all part of a wicked basketball lesson provided by Arizona in a 74-51 crushing of the Crimson on Saturday in the NCAA tournament. He can now join Lloyd Christmas.

New Mexico Beat Writer Covering the Lobos for 30+ Years Quits Because of Loss to Harvard

 

The Mountain West Conference regular season and tournament champs, the New Mexico Lobos were poised for a big run in March. Being seeded as high as #3 in the NCAA Tournament. So naturally, the Lobos lost in the first round to Harvard as an 11-point underdog.

 

As you could image the atmosphere around the program was quite bad after the loss, so bad that a longtime Lobos beat writer quit. Dennis Latta, who claimed to have covered the team for “much” of the last 33 years, is exiting stage left.

 

But I won’t be wrong again. It was a lot easier to take when expectations were lower. Losing was acceptable because UNM had almost always lost when it really counted. You didn’t have visions of greatness, only to have them dashed. After the pitiful performance UNM put up against a team that doesn’t even offer scholarships, I’ve given up. Having all five starters back next season means nothing on a team that can just disappear like that. I’d be back to wondering when it would collapse, have a terrible game and lose to an inferior team again.

 

No, I’ve had it. I’ve been to my last Lobo basketball game after covering the team for much of the last 33 years.

 

Good-bye Lobo basketball.

 

New Mexico will return their entire starting lineup from a 29-6 team and be a preseason Top 10 team. The Lobos could even be in the Top 5. Latta will regret this move.
