The Washington State Cougars didn't leave Los Angeles on Saturday night, instead opting to stay in town before the Pac-12 Tournament. There was little point in traveling back to Pullman just to fly right back to L.A. for the tournament, thus the decision to stay. It also gave the coaching staff a little time to hit the road and watch a few prospects.
This is the story of assistant coach Jeff Hironaka's night.
At JC game in California.Bench clearing brawl.Police brought in rifle.We will see what happens.— Jeff Hironaka (@coachhiro) March 4, 2012
Probably the calmest tweet possible from a man watching a brawl and seeing police with an assault rifle. But never fear! The trip wasn't a wash.
Well no T's or ejections the game goes on— Jeff Hironaka (@coachhiro) March 4, 2012
Back down to business, Hironaka's tweets switched from brawl watch to shot selection watch.
well so far game is very entertaining.Shot selection for the game has been poor.Never seen so many tough shots in one game.— Jeff Hironaka (@coachhiro) March 4, 2012
And, of course, the game didn't end quietly. Going to guess these two players aren't on the recruiting list.
Well to top off game 2 players from same team get into it after game polkce have to separate them.Go figure.Very entertaining— Jeff Hironaka (@coachhiro) March 4, 2012
The lesson in all of this? Junior college basketball is the best.
Hironaka was fine and shrugged it all off like he wasn't even phased. Just another reason Hiro should be your favorite assistant coach.
