Knight exit seemed strange

While a small group of Centenary fans showed a lack of class by verbally abusing Texas Tech coach Bobby Knight as he left the court at halftime of Tuesday night's game with the Gents, Knight didn't respond as a mature coach by not coming back to the court for the second half.

Sure, the Texas Tech people said he was still ailing from the flu that he contracted in Alaska. But that sounded like an excuse. Knight was healthy enough to start the game, but he stuck his son with finishing he contest? Sounds like he couldn't take a little ribbing from some fans, who couldn't be as obnoxious as typical Big 12 fans. If they are, then kudos to the Centenary clan who drove him from the CenturyTel Center.

Maybe the Gents would have won the game anyway. But the win certainly became easier without the Hall of Fame coach in the lineup.

The Centenary students that caused the eruption from Coach Knight were athletes, poking fun at his recent shotgun story in the news. A section of the students yelled "Duck!" as he walked past, and hit the ground, causing Knight to just go ballistic.
I thought it was pretty amusing, but then again, I'm not Bobby Knight.

It wasn't "duck" that did it Sarah. It was the "OH @#$!, he has a gun."
And Knight didnt go ballistic by any stretch. He was calm.
