Everyone knows that the little Hampton College doesn't have a prayer against top-seeded Kentucky in the first round of the NCAA tournament on Thursday … or do they?
After the Pirates advanced to meet the Wildcats with a 74-64 First Four win over Manhattan Tuesday night, Hampton head coach Edward Joyner was asked about the odds of his team beating the No. 1 team in the country — if any.
Joyner then picked up his cell phone, said he had Jesus on speed dial and pretended to get His opinion of the task at hand.
And even The Big J hung up on the coach.
Too bad. A little divine intervention would have been quite the sixth man.
