When Nevada basketball player Ahyaro Phillips was kicked off the Wolfpack basketball team last week for an undisclosed gun charge, there seemed to be more to the story than was being told. And now thanks to the NEVADA SAGEBRUSH, we know exactly what went down. Phillips allegedly went to the school’s recreation center with a .22 caliber gun looking for Nevada linebacker Adam Liranzo as a result of a fight at a party a few days earlier.
I’m guessing that Phillips wasn’t seeking out Liranzo to get some gun safety tips. This could have been very, very bad, but fortunately Phillips was stopped before things went from farcical to tragic. Phillips is now facing up to a year in jail if convicted, and although he seemed “somber” when turning himself into the police, the fact that “he still thinks he wasn’t wrong” doesn’t bode well for him having learned any lesson.
