Don’t Know The Mascot Of Your Team’s NCAA Tourney Opponent? Neither Do The Players
One of the greatest aspects of March Madness is that hoops fans get to watch the giants of college basketball compete with—and occasionally lose to—teams they’ve never heard of.
Apparently, some of the stars on the big-name teams have never heard of the little guys either.
After interviewing BYU’s Jimmer Fredette, UCONN’s Kemba Walker and Duke’s Nolan Smith, ESPN’s Rece Davis asked if any of them could name their opponent’s mascot (Wofford, Bucknell and Hampton, respectively).
The result was lots of awkward smiling and laughter until an unsure Smith came up with the correct answer of Hampton Pirates, saving the other two from having to confess to ignorance on the matter.
As Yahoo! Sports points out, Smith had the definite advantage considering he grew up in Upper Marlboro, Md, only a few hours from Hampton. But we doubt that’ll give Duke any extra advantage come tourney time.
