Louisville Forward Montrezl Harrell Throws Punch at Western Kentucky Opponent

Louisville forward Montrezl Harrell is averaging 17.0 points and 10.4 rebounds per game this season, but on Saturday morning, he may have brought his leadership into question. 

After going down, Harrell got up and threw a punch at Western Kentucky’s Avery Patterson. Harrell had to be restrained by his teammates.

The junior is listed at 6’8″ and 240 pounds, so it’s a good thing he missed. Credit to Patterson, who did his best Floyd Mayweather impression to dodge the punch.

As one might imagine, Harrell was hit with an ejection:

Notre Dame’s Demetrius Jackson Throws Down over Purdue’s 7’2″ Isaac Haas

Point guards can usually anticipate struggling to score in the paint on 7’2″ centers, but not Notre Dame’s Demetrius Jackson.

Driving to the lane against the Purdue Boilermakers on Saturday, Jackson threw down a vicious slam dunk over Purdue center Isaac Haas. Jackson is a full 13 inches shorter than Haas, but that didn’t seem to matter.

The Fighting Irish came away with the 93-64 win behind Jackson’s 22 points on 7-of-10 shooting.

Grizzlies’ Mike Conley Throws Pass Directly to Woman Holding Beer Courtside

“This is an unfortunate way to lose $20 and go home smelling like you’ve been at a frat party.”

Memphis Grizzlies point guard Mike Conley is doing his part to boost the local economy by taking out beers in the front row with his errant passes.

In a pass somehow intended for Quincy Pondexter, Conley instead passed directly to the lap of a woman sitting courtside, spilling her beer. 

A timeout was subsequently called and a crew had to clean up all the beer.
