March Madness is in full throttle and we have seen an array of upsets that probably busted your brackets (good thing I had Mizzou losing). Although there have been no overtime games or made buzzer beaters, this tournament has provided plenty of excitement, and I expect most of these last few games to come down to the wire.

This weeks Video of the Week features a college basketball game from the 1995 ACC Conference Championship game. Randolph Childress of Wake Forrest breaks Jeff McInnis’ ankles and proceeds to blow the fallen McInnis a kiss before draining a three.  While this may be cocky, I think it was one of the sickest plays college basketball has ever seen and I’m hoping we see some more flashiness throughout the tournament.



In case you were wondering, Childress went on to be selected in the first round. After averaging 2.4 points per game and tearing his ACL in his second season, Childress left the NBA and went on to play in Turkey, Australia, and Italy.

McInnis was drafted in the second round, but enjoyed a much more successful NBA career which last thirteen seasons. However, I wouldn’t say this left McInnis with the “last laugh.” Besides this crossover, McInnis is most famous for rather embarrassing moments during his career. One includes getting in a fistfight with teammate Charles Oakley over a woman, which resulted in Oakley getting fined and suspended and McInnis with no punishment. Many believe McInnis received no punishment because all of his retaliation attempts in the fight “failed.”

Later in his career with the Nets, McInnis was stuck in NBA limbo. After New Jersey failed to reach a buyout agreement, they still did not want him on the roster. This resulted in McInnis officially being on the Nets roster, but he was exiled from the team meaning he was not allowed to show up to any team events including games and practices. Finally, the Nets were able to deal McInnis to the Bobcats, but this only added further embarrassment to his career. One night, the bobcats forgot to write Jeff’s name on the official team roster, which resulted in the Bobcats being charged with a technical foul before the game even started. Apparently this was Charlotte’s way of saying they wanted McInnis to retire, as he was released less than a month later.

Writing this article has only made me feel even more sorry for Mr. McInnis, so please, Take a Bad Schot this weekend for him.
