When I was a freshman at Nova and we played against Rutgers and all our family members were at the game 🤦🏿♂️ pic.twitter.com/zEJJsFp0Vi

Have I ever been in the Villanova locker room? No. Have I ever personally met Jay Wright? Nope. Have I gotten my ass chewed out from my basketball coach for getting out-rebounded and losing to a team we should’ve beat? Absolutely. Shout out to the 2010-11 Lansdale Catholic Crusaders 4-18 basketball season. Antonio Brown has had more victories in the last year than we had that season.
The game he is referring to has to be this one from 2008 when #18 Nova lost to Rutgers.
This impression is spot on. There’s no doubt Corey Fisher was telling everyone around campus he was one and done. Remember that story came out that he scored 105 points in a Dyckman Summer League game in NY? You don’t score 75 points in the second half and take on double and triple teams and not tell people you’re one and done as a freshman. The funny thing is Malcolm Grant had his best game of the year and Jay Wright just decided to stop playing him for the rest of the season.
He scored a season-high 23 points, in 18 minutes, against Rutgers. Following that game he played one minute in the following three games. He saw limited playing time for the rest of the season, after coach Jay Wright’s decision to stop playing Grant. On April 4, 2008 he received a release, to explore transfer opportunities to other universities.
Everything was spot on from the mannerisms to the coach speak. Anyone that has been in that situation will tell you they remember it vividly. That postgame rant is burned into his brain forever.
