Univ of New Orleans Player Went Sprewell On A Teammate
NCAA Tournament doesn’t usually have some of the weird drama between teammates like we sometimes see during the season, but maybe, this year is different. University of New Orleans kicked off the First Four by playing Mount Saint Mary’s, and the game was close for the most part throughout the game. Travin Thibodeaux choked out Christavious Gill after a disagreement on the court. Thibodeaux didn’t see the court for the rest of the second half, and who knows if that could have affected New Orleans’ chances as they were going back and forth all game long.

This is a bummer that something like this happened in NCAA Tournament. I’m not going to hit you with the ‘Stay Classy’ police here because I’m not about that life. That said, this is such a shame for a team like New Orleans who had a great story for how they got there. Privateers have been perpetually bad throughout the years, and their first appearance since 1996. Too bad. Hope this sort of thing blows over, and it’s players being way too fired up even if choking isn’t the answer.
