So, Robert Sacre has two black eyes after getting hit in the face at practice this week. Here's the story ...
I had to ask Mike Brown how his favorite Gonzaga rookie got those shiners. Take it away, Mike:
"He got a good one in practice the other day. But, you know what? He got hit and he just kept playing. He just kept playing. He didn’t say a single word, then it started gushing with blood. He went and saw the trainer and they plugged his nose and they sutured his nose and he went back out there and kept playing the rest of practice. He didn’t miss a beat. And you know, you want to earn respect as a big, tough, strong guy – especially with this team or in this league – and that’s how you do it.
"After he got hit, he went back to continuing to play the same defense on Dwight (Howard). Nose in there and all.
"He thinks he’s pretty, that’s the only thing about it. He does think he’s pretty and well, that crooked nose is going to dispute that a little bit."
