Jim Boeheim joined the Dan Patrick Show on Wednesday afternoon to discuss his ejection in the game at Duke.
Because what else?
Anyway, Boeheim made as many headlines for the fact that he was not at all remorseful for getting tossed and costing him team a game as he did for the actual technicals themselves. He addressed that with Dan Patrick:
“It wasn’t really right, I made a mistake,” Boeheim said. “I really thought the game was over on that play and I jsut thought it was the wrong call. You get emotional and you get kinda crazy I coulda taken the one T and gone back, but at that point it didn’t matter. I was thoroughly upset.”
“It’s just one of those moments you kind of regret a little bit, I’m not so sure I entirely regret it, but you have to move on.”
Marquette freshman forward Henry Ellenson won the Marquette Madness slam dunk contest on Friday night with a between the legs dunk.
The 6-foot-10 Ellenson, the top recruit in Steve Wojciechowski’s freshmen class, defeated sophomore Sandy Cohen, fellow freshman Sacar Anim and Wally Ellenson, his older brother.
Ellenson joins the Golden Eagles as the No. 11 overall recruit in the Class of 2015.
Late Night in the Phog is typically a night to remember for Kansas fans. For Kansas student Jerrod Martin Castro, Friday night’s event is one he won’t forget.
Castro, a sophomore, was selected as a contestant for a $10,000 giveaway. The only thing standing in the way of a big payday was a half-court shot. Brennan Bechard, the Kansas director of basketball operations, attempted the long-distance shot and hit nothing but net.
Kansas head coach Bill Self signed a $10,000 check on the spot.
