The one-man handshake line

So last night's Siena-Rider game at the TU Center got heated after a scuffle late in the second half. That prompted Rider to skip the handshake line at the end of the game -- but Siena coach Jimmy Patsos walked it anyway. Cue the SportsCenter highlights.

Siena won the game 78-68.

In the post-game press conference, Patsos said of Rider's coach: "I love Kevin Baggett. He, [St. Peter's] John Dunne, and me are the three closest friends in the league, we pal around the most. It was a basketball game. Things got a little heated. I don't think anyone meant anything by it. ... [reporter interjection about in-game situation with Baggett] I just do my own thing. I've got plenty of problems to worry about myself. My inventory plate's full."


This site became a basketball blog so gradually, I hardly even noticed! Two hoops posts in two days.

Maybe Will Brown can break dance at half court or something to keep the streak alive.

@KGB: We can only hope!
