Piling Pelion on Ossa

This is for all the “what’s his name” haters dislikers. I’m not in that category, but not above feeding the flames for others.

I’m not going to retell the whole Maori Davenport story, but if you are still in the dark, you can read a criticism at the link below.

The story has escalated to the NY Times who ran a news item today including this:

After U.S.A. Basketball sent the check but before Davenport received it, Kelley wrote, she received a call from Jeff Walz. Walz is the women’s basketball coach at the University of Louisville, and was also the coach of the United States under-18 team. Walz asked Tara Davenport if she had received the check yet. She said she had not, and asked whether Maori could accept it. Walz told her that she was allowed to, and that it was permitted by the N.C.A.A.

Louisville officials did not respond to a request to comment.
