The Daily Yam: This Vicious Montrezl Harrell Alley-Oop Was The Best Part Of A Roller Coaster First Half
Welcome to The Daily Yam, SportsGrid’s newest feature, bringing you the top play from the night before, anything else you might have missed, and what to look forward to today. It’s your one-stop shop when you’ve missed last night’s action, and/or have forgotten what day it is. Today, we celebrate the yam that was Montrezl Harrell grabbing the ball 12 feet out of the air and throwing it down on Michigan.
If you thought a heavily bearded George Mason transfer who had to sit out last year and comes off the bench would post 42 points over two games and win the Most Outstanding Player award, get over here and collect your prize. Luke Hancock shot out of his mind last night, including 5-5 from three, to help Louisville outgun Michigan 82-76 last night.
Why Is The Louisville Cardinals Women’s Basketball Team Throwing Up Gun Fingers With Kevin Durant On ABC? (VIDEO)
The kid has comedy chops.
Kevin Ware’s broken leg was awful and chilling to watch, but thankfully what’s happened since has been pretty much the opposite. Good news on his surgery, (relatively) good news on his current status – and now, good news about his Final Four plans. Oh, and he sat down for an interview with ESPN, too – see it after the jump.
So as we’re sure you’ve heard (and seen, if you wanted to see it) by now, Louisville guard Kevin Ware suffered a terrible broken leg during the Cardinals’ Elite Eight matchup against Duke yesterday. That’s the bad news. The good: all things considered, Ware’s doing about as well as you could expect.
Louisville’s Women’s Players Were So Excited To Pose For Pictures With Kevin Durant That They Accidentally Punched A Guy In The Face
Louisville’s women’s basketball players were already probably the most excited they’d ever been in their lives – they pulled off the shocker of the NCAA Tournament, defeating NCAA title favorite Baylor 82-81 in the Sweet 16. And then Kevin Durant showed up. Evidently, it all might have been a little too much at once.
In what was a turning into a classic NCAA Tournament battle between two of the sport’s biggest programs, everything stopped. Players dropped to the ground in tears. Then CBS showed the footage. In case you are at all squeamish, here’s what happened.
Top seeded Louisville is whuping up on UNC A&T, as expected, even if Chane Behanan is violently slamming basketballs into the side of the rim on fastbreaks. Watch as he winds up for a photo op, and ends up as a “FAIL” GIF. Luckily, the ball ended coming right back to him, for some quick redemption.
We’re Pretty Sure This Dunk Was Only Called An Offensive Foul At First Because The Refs Figured It Was Too Violent Not To Be
The dunk you see above was legal (and eventually counted as such), but it was initially called an offensive foul. This despite the defender clearly being inside the restricted area, where a charge can’t be called on an offensive player. Why did the refs get it so wrong at first? Well, our guess is they saw it, and almost without thinking, reacted by saying to themselves, “OK, no way that was not a foul.” It’s kind of understandable. [Busted Coverage]
