High School Girls Hoops Coach Refuses To Let Team Play In Regional Tourney Because They Got A #3 Seed Instead Of A #1 Seed
Source - After receiving a third seed in the sectional tournament when he felt his team deserved a No. 1 seed, Hanford (Calif.) High girls basketball coach Tom Parrish refused to show up for regionals, so tourney officials left his team out of the postseason competition entirely. “I’m pissed off,” Parrish told The Fresno Bee in the days after his team’s 57-39 Division I Central Section semifinal loss to No. 2 West Clovis (Fresno, Calif.) High last week. “I’ve got cameras stuck in my face and I say, ‘I’m not going.’” Despite the blowout loss, Parrish’s Bullpups (23-5) still would have earned an invite to the Southern California Div. I regional tournament, scheduled to begin on Wednesday.
Two things Coach. First off you’re a grown man coaching girl’s basketball. Your team’s name is the Bullpups. Lighten up. Nobody cares. If you win a game in girl’s basketball it just means the other team bricked more lay-ups than you or you got fouled a lot since for some inexplicable reason chicks can just crush free throws. So relax. 1 seed, 3 seed, 16 seed… it’s basically all the same thing. And two, maybe save all that “We’re #1″ rah rah bullshit for some other time and not right after the #2 team just stomped on your dick and beat you by 20 points. I honestly didn’t even know a team of chicks that hoop could score 20 points in a basketball game period nevermind have it be an actual margin of victory. Were you playing the ’98 Houston Comets or something? Did Tina Thompson and her 5 lb. lips clear the glass and dominate the paint on you? Because that’s embarrassing bro. Start teaching your girls how to draw fouls and maybe work on not getting run out of the gym so much.
