NCAA Player's Calm, Sarcastic Response To A Reporter's Question Shuts Him Right Up

This is how rebounding works.

March Madness 2016 is underway, which means for the next few weeks, sports fans and degenerate gamblers alike will have their eyes fixated to TV screens, tablets, and phones while watching the games, checking their pool standings, and looking up highlights. Even President Obama is in on the action, as per usual, and yesterday's first day of the tournament didn't disappoint.

After the first big upset of the year, in which 12-seed Yale beat 5-seed Baylor, a couple players from the losing team were taking questions from the media when forward Taurean Prince was asked how his team was out-rebounded. He obviously wasn't in the mood for that question, so he answered it completely deadpan and as literal as it comes.

"You go up and grab the ball off the rim when it comes off, and then you grab it with two hands, and then you come down with it," he said. "That's considered a rebound. So, they got more of those than we did."

Spectacular stuff, really. And it's far better watching him say the words as opposed to reading them:


There's always next year.
