The Delaware Sports Commission put out a release on Wednesday announcing the return of the Slam Dunk to the Beach tournament.
It will be held from Dec. 27th-29th at Cape Henlopen HS in Lewes, DE, and will feature 15 high school teams, including Sunrise Christian Academy (KS), Our Savior New American (NY), Gonzaga (DC), Neumann-Goretti (PA), Christ the King (NY) and St. Vincent’s-St. Mary’s (OH).
Slam Dunk to the Beach was one of the biggest high school tournaments in the country a decade ago, with NBA stars like LeBron, Dwight Howard, Carmelo Anthony and Jay Williams playing, but the event hasn’t been held since 2003. It was disbanded when the founder, Bobby Jacobs, was caught misappropriating more than $87,000 in funds from the event. He was later arrested for plotting a revenge scheme against the people that sent him to jail.
No. 22 Kentucky is currently in the process of running South Carolina off the court in Columbia, and the statement play came just now.
After picking off a pass, Tyler Ulis led a fast break and tossed an alley-oop off the glass to Marcus Lee.
The Cats are currently up 49-29. Ulis had 14 points and six assists. Imagine what would be happening if Kentucky had their head coach…
It only took 2:26 for John Calipari to get tossed for the second straight game at South Carolina.
But why he get ejected, I have no idea.
A foul was called on South Carolina. Then Coach Cal was given a technical foul for … something. That’s when this first video picks up, when Cal goes at the referee that gave him the first T, says a few magic words and gets rung up a second time.
That’s when he really loses it, having to get held back by his own players to keep him from going after the officials.
If anyone has any insight into why Cal lost his mind, please let us know. Because we’re lost.
