Just when you think you've seen it all...
Yesterday, with under three minutes to go and YSU trailing UDM by four points, a UDM player had his shoe come off on UDM's end of the court in front of its bench. Play continued and YSU gained possession, so the players moved to YSU's end of the court. A UDM assistant coach picked up the shoe and threw it in that direction, nearly 20 yards downcourt. He must have thought the player could retrieve the shoe and put it on while YSU was in the midst of running it's offense. The shoe landed near YSU's bench. A technical foul was called on UDM's bench because of this utterly ridiculous brain cramp and YSU hit it's two free throws. YSU went on to come from behind and win by two points.
For anyone with access to game video on the ESPN app, it is worth viewing.
If YSU barely edges out Milwaukee for the final tournament spot in the conference standings, it will be partially because of this bizarre shoe throwing incident!
