UMass Guard Trucks Press Row Member
There’s a drawback to the close proximity to the court when it comes to press row at basketball games: You can find yourself face-to-face with the players at said games in an instant.
Such as the poor soul who got leveled by UMass guard Derrick Gordon - furiously in pursuit of a loose ball as it was heading out of bounds - late in the Minutemen’s 92-90 victory over LSU on Tuesday. Amazingly, despite the big collision, the laptop on which the media member was working appeared to be unscathed.
Just in case he thought about using the whole “I got crushed by a player” excuse to file his piece past deadline.
