Video: Marcus Smart Has Two More Huge Flops
Apparently Oklahoma State guard Marcus Smart really wants some write-in votes for Sunday’s Academy Awards.
Smart’s 21-point, six-rebound performance in the Pokes’ 72-65 upset of Kansas on Saturday was sullied by the latest additions to his compilation of egregious flops. After stripping Jayhawks forward Perry Ellis, Smart took an over-the-top tumble backward after Ellis made slight contact with him in a effort to recover the ball. On a separate occasion, Smart leapt over Ellis, crashed to the floor and barrel rolled to try and pick up a foul.
Don’t be shocked if, because of Smart, the NCAA starts penalizing excessive flopping next season.
