The College Of Charleston's Women's Basketball Team Had To Forfeit Two Wins Because Their Balls Were Too Big
SportingNews- The Colonial Athletic Association announced Thursday that it will not count a pair of victories by the College of Charleston women's basketball team last month because the Cougars used "improperly sized" balls in the wins.
According to The Post and Courier, CAA commissioner Joe D'Antonio wanted the 6-14 Cougars to forfeit the games outright, but NCAA rules don't allow that type of penalty to be imposed in this circumstance. So the conference will instead adjust the results internally when it comes time to determine seedings for the conference tournament.
That means William & Mary and UNC Wilmington will each be able to count an additional win despite losing to College of Charleston on Jan. 6 and 8, respectively.
Both of those games were played at TD Arena in Charleston, S.C., and under NCAA rules the home team supplies the game ball. It's unclear whether the balls employed in those games were too big or too small.
Honestly, I hope you read that title with your head in the gutter because an entire women's basketball team getting caught with elephantiasis of the testicles would not only be way more funny, but it would be way more deserving of forfeited wins. I highly doubt the Lady Cougars were part of a conspiracy to play their games in the Colonial Athletic Association with balls that were slightly bigger than normal so I am not even sure how a mishap like this occurs. I am, however, sure that a disingenuous act of snitching is the only way it goes public enough for an investigation to take place.
Can you imagine the type of bitches (allowable, I would use the same term if men did this #equality) that would narc to the league about the size of the ball after losing a game in which both teams used the same ball? I need to know whether it's William & Mary or UNC Wilmington that it responsible for this, because this retrospective whining is a far bigger disgrace to basketball than the use off men's balls in a women's game. To agree to compete without a semblance of a competitive disadvantage and then cry about a minor difference in weight and circumference after the fact? I don't know who the guilty party is, but they sound like they are exactly what's wrong with the feminist movement. Getting all butt-hurt because getting treated like men didn't happen to work out in their favor this particular time? Who is their coach, Lena Dunham?! The poor women of Charleston were just just trying to be a little more progressive and they ended up losing a couple hard fought wins because of it, so I guess it really is one step forward, two steps back.
