Arkansas’ Rashad Madden Lost His Shoe, Then This Happened (Video)
Ever wonder what the college basketball rule was regarding incidents when a player on the bench throws his shoe at a teammate on the court? Surprisingly, we now have an answer to that question following Thursday night’s NCAA Tournament match-up between No. 5 Arkansas and No. 12 Wofford.
