Boring Big 10 Basketball – Grizzlies’ head coach Lionel Hollins doesn’t watch his son Minnesota Gophers’ freshman Austin’s college game. “He was my son in high school and I didn’t watch him then, either,” Hollins said. “When I was out of basketball, I went to every game. I hated it. But I had to do it.” “In college, especially in the Big Ten … I watched Wisconsin and Minnesota play down the stretch and I couldn’t take it. They just hold the ball and hold the ball, and try to get a shot with 10 seconds on the clock.” I think he’s just jealous that Jimmer isn’t his son. I am. (Star Tribune)
