Nevada basketball player gets beat up, kicked off team in strange case
Some crazy stuff went down at the University of Nevada this weekend, and it includes basketball and possibly football players. Let's get this straight:
Coach tells basketball player not to go out on a Saturday night. Player ignores coach and goes out - to a Halloween house party. Player has a good time, dances. Four party crashers show up, one bumps into player while he dances. Player mouths off and gets beaten unconscious and robbed by two of the party crashers, one of whom is a brother of a Wolfpack football player. Party-goers try to kick party crashers out and get shot and killed - three in total. Player gets kicked off the team three days later.
Sound a little screwed up? Yeah, it does to us, too.
But it's true. A Nevada basketball player ignored a coach's orders, ended up getting pummeled and robbed at a party where three people were shot and killed, and then was kicked off the team a few days later.
