Xavier Players Can Fight Each Other In The Huddle All They Want, Because Winning Is All That Matters
For some teams you probably don't want to see this as you're in the middle of a 15-2 run, in a tight game and under 4 minutes to go in the first round of the NCAA Tournament. I say, show some emotion. Anyone who has played sports has gotten into a spat with a teammate a time or two. It's called passion. Hell, Kunkel hit a three like 3 possessions after it happened. Maybe piss him off more.
You know why?
It wasn't pretty. It wasn't even good. Xavier needed that 15-2 run to take the lead against a 14 seed. But all that matters is winning. Win 6 games by 6 total points and you're still national champs. And I know people are bringing up if there was a foul or not after the block by Nunge. I don't know. There's a swipe but it wasn't anything egregious. Seems fine.
Then again you can't have Boum biffing wide open layups with the game on the line.
But again winning cures all. Shout out Kennesaw State and Amir Abdur-Rahim though. Dude can coach his ass off and the fact he even had them in the NCAA Tournament was ridiculous. A+ interview too.
But it's the NCAA Tournament. Hell of a cover, KSU. Winning is what matters. Fight all you want as long as you win.
