Louisville big man Montrezl Harrell is a cautionary tale for aspiring showboaters everywhere.
With Louisville leading Providence big on Wednesday night in the waning moments of a 80-62 victory, the blue-chip freshman forward who is normally an awesome dunker tried to hot dog by throwing down a windmill dunk and put an exclamation point on the victory. The problem? Harrell didn’t get enough lift and was rejected by the rim, leading the ball to ricochet out of bounds and his teammates to hide their faces.
Rick Pitino might think twice the next time he considers giving Harrell playing time.
