WILDCAT GIVES DEPAUL THUMBS UP … THUMBS WAY UP! I thought everyone was like me, enraptured and enthralled by early round NIT action. But apparently there is at least one person who might not share my zeal, Billy Walker of Kansas State.
While dressed out on the bench last night for the Wildcats in their NIT contest against DePaul, Walker enjoyed a tub of popcorn during the game (clip via Awful Announcing):
But it was an understandable reaction, considering this shot of KSU’s Bramlage Coliseum scoreboard before the opening tipoff:
When asked about the game afterwards, Walker reportedly said, “In the tradition of a Dallas Comegys clutch jumpshot, DePaul’s performance was a Tour de Force, while the game was a taut, psychological thriller. The NIT is really shaping up as the feel-good hit of the early summer.“
