Police Called After Dude Tried to Give Kansas Basketball Players Free-Throw Advice At Dorm
University of Kansas police were called to the men’s basketball dorm on Wednesday afternoon after a strange man repeatedly tried to get in so he could—are you ready for it?—teach the players how to shoot free throws.
You cannot make this stuff up.
According to the police report, a call came in around 3:30 p.m. about a man who was not a student but was “wanting to give free-throw advice.” Apparently he had shown up numerous times that day before concerned students decided to call the police.
Police would not identify “the intended recipient of the man’s advice.” However, there’s a pretty good chance it was seven-foot center Udoka Azubuike. He’s shooting below 40% from the charity stripe this season, and on Tuesday he missed six free throws after being intentionally fouled four times during the final three minutes of a 85-80 loss to Oklahoma.
At this point the police don’t seem too concerned that the would-be free throw coach poses any danger to the public. And to be honest, if I were Azubuike, I would have heard the guy out. Because you never know, maybe he did have the answer.
That said, if you’re a student at KU and you’re worried about being given free-throw advice against your will, watch out for a “suspicious” looking guy in a “blue and red windbreaker.”
