UNC Asheville Player Just Needs Some WIFI At His Hotel So He Can Do His Homework (Tweets)
If you play for teams like Kentucky, or Kansas, or North Carolina, you don’t really have to worry too much about “homework” during March Madness, whether because you have no intention of actually finishing the school year because you’re going to declare for the NBA draft, or because you have a tutor who will just do your homework for you.
However, if you don’t play for a powerhouse program, you’ll probably have to get a real job when you’re done with college. And if that’s the case, it means you can’t just shirk off your responsibilities as a student just because you’re playing in the NCAA Tournament.
UNC Asheville player Trae Bryant knows what I’m talking about. He’s in Brooklyn with the rest of his team getting ready to take on #2 Villanova on Friday, but apparently he was having some trouble logging in to the hotel WIFI to do his homework. So he tweeted at the NCAA to take care of that sitch:
The NCAA provides free wi-fi to student-athletes at all of the team hotels during the DI men’s basketball championship.

So apparently it was just some sort of misunderstanding. As in, Bryant just didn’t understand how to login to the WIFI.
The lesson? Maybe investigate things a bit more before you go calling people out on Twitter.
