The women’s basketball team for North Platte Community College (Neb.) beat Dakota College at Bottineau (N.D.) 64-40 on Sunday to win their district, but their celebration didn’t go so smoothly. As you can see in the video above, the team tried to give their coach, Richard Thurin, a Gatorade shower, but they missed and spilled the liquid, which caused him to slip and land on his face. The team’s effort was poor across the board. Let’s examine all the areas they went wrong: - They charged right up to their coach instead of sneaking up from behind - They didn’t lift the cooler high enough to dowse him - They left all the liquid on the floor, causing two people to slip The only good news is that the team advances to the national tournament next week. And at least they can take comfort in knowing that they have something in common with the Alabama football team.
