At least she shaves.

Now we know why he never took a men's basketball coaching job.
Just arrest everyone to be safe.
Calhoun steps down with 873 career victories and three national titles but says his greatest accomplishment as a head coach was "crushing the joy out of countless young men."
"So many 18 year-old players show up on campus and they want to have fun and make friends and enjoy themselves," said Calhoun. "That's not what basketball is about. It's about tearing out all of that happiness and positivity and that youthful carefree attitude until all that is left is robotic, joyless, basketball fundamentals. It's the reason I angrily crawled out of bed every morning."
Without the October to April grind of the season and recruiting, Calhoun said he will have a lot more free time.
"I think retirement and free time is for losers, but here we are," he said. "I hate everyone, myself included. At least I'm consistent, unlike the hypocrites that make up the rest of the human parasite race."

Opinion Kemba Walker's Book Club
I want to thank you all again for agreeing to be part of my book club. As you all know, my admission that I had only read one book in my life got a lot of press coverage. So I thought maybe other players like me were in the same boat and could really benefit from digging into the classics.

I am glad to be a part of your club. I was only at Duke for a year and I spent so much time on basketball that I didn't do much reading at all. Really any reading at all.
I hear you. That's how it is. We're all work so hard to get to the NBA, to raise our draft prospects, to get that big contract that will have us set for life, that we don't take much time to put all that aside and spend a week on a great work of fiction.

It definitely takes time. I haven't worked out in days because of this book.
Yes. This book. It was a tough one. But I thought we should start in the deep water. Ulysses by James Joyce. What did you all think?

"Wow. I knew something unusual was happening out there on the court," said Butler head coach Brad Stevens, "and now this record proves it. We are very disappointed to lose, but at least we were part of history. I guess."
Despite the loss, Stevens' Butler squad led the way in creating rebound opportunities by missing 52 field goals and six free throws.
"They really dominated us on the missed shots," said UConn head coach Jim Calhoun. "It wasn't even close. But we managed to beat them in almost every other statistical category and it showed up on the scoreboard."
While UConn's players got to cut down the nets as NCAA champions, Butler will also receive a memento from the game: the rims and backboards.
"They were damaged beyond repair from all of the bricks they threw up, so we can't use them anyway," said Reliant Stadium court manager Jeff Tidway. "So Butler is getting the rims most of the paint is chipped off and also the backboards, which have a number of hairline fractures."
