I don’t remember exactly why Don Verlin was so pissed off in that moment.
I just remember his foot stamping the Orleans Arena floor so loudly, it reverberated all too clearly throughout the cavernous building.
It was probably just an out of bounds call which didn’t go his way. Whatever.
It was only the opening minutes of a quarterfinal conference tournament game against Missouri-Kansas City, a game Idaho came into with a losing record and with very little on the line.
Except, perhaps, his reputation.
