Police called on Kansas fan that showed up to the players' dorm offering free throw advice

January 25, 2018

Watching one of your teams struggle from the couch is as frustrating as it gets. In the midst of you're screaming at the TV and beer-sipping, the realization often sets in that there's nothing you can personally do about it. Well, maybe that's just because you aren't as insane as this Kansas Jayhawks fan who took matters into his own hands.

On Tuesday, No. 5 ranked Kansas had a 10-point lead with under 10 minutes to play on the road against No. 12 ranked Oklahoma. With the help of the crowd, and some strategy by Sooners coach Lon Kruger, Oklahoma came storming back to win 85-80. Late in the game, Kruger had his team foul Kansas center Udoka Azubuike, who would end up finishing the game 1-for-7 from the free throw line. As a team Kansas went 6-for-14, giving them an ugly 42.9 percentage on the night. This didn't sit well with one Jayhawk fan, who reportedly showed up to the players dorm on Wednesday offering "free throw advice". His counseling must have been worse than Azubuike's foul-shooting percentage, because the police had to be called:

The call about the man "wanting to give free-throw advice" came in about 3:30 p.m., but when police got to McCarthy Hall, the man — who's not a KU student — had already left, KU police Deputy Chief James Anguiano said.

The report goes on to say that the man had been periodically showing up to the dorm throughout the day, and may have even returned around 5 p.m. after the cops had left. Would love to know what magical secret this man thinks he has that Kansas coach Bill Self doesn't. Something along the lines of "just bend your knees!" or "get your elbow in!". If he suggested granny-style, there better be a warrant out for his arrest.
