I did not get to watch the epic UNLV game last night but all who did are in agreement that it was one for the ages. TCU who is a sub-par basketball team decided to shoot like a team of Kyle Korver’s last night, making 17 3 pointers. And the ending was storybook as Wink hit a jumper with 3 seconds left to tie it, and then hit the game winning free throw. When coach Kruger was asked about it he said, “It was a good game.” A good game? Really? This is like Indiana Jones finding the Holy Grail and saying, “it was a good day.” Here is what the Review Journal had to say about it.
“It was a good game,” Rebels coach Lon Kruger said.
This guy is classic.
Kruger to Neil Armstrong while leaning out of Apollo 11 in 1969: “Nice leap.”
Kruger to Jesse Owens in 1936 at the finish line in Berlin: “Good run.”
Kruger to Douglas MacArthur in 1914 at the Veracruz seaside: “Fine strategy.”
This guy should be national coach of the year as he has done more with less than any team in the nation, period.
