North Florida Coach Talks ‘Ballers’ and ‘Dudes’ During Halftime Interview (Video)
During a halftime interview, North Florida coach Matthew Driscoll was asked what he told his team when they were trailing Robert Morris by seven midway through the first half of their NCAA Tournament first round match-up.
Here’s what he had to say:
Not surprisingly, the whole “ballers make plays, dudes are dudes” pep talk helped spark a 23-10 run for North Florida, giving them a 35-29 lead at the end of the first. But whatever Driscoll had to say to his players at the half wasn’t nearly as motivational, as the Ospreys were outscored 52-42 in the second frame, losing to Robert Morris, 81-77.
