There must be something about balls, groins, and nuts on Tuesday because they seem to be everywhere. First, it was Steve Nash making a video of his balls in everyone’s face. As if that wasn’t enough, Texas Tech’s NIT win over Seton Hall was marred yet assisted by a few low blows from Pirates forward Herb Pope who decided to take a few nut shots at Texas Tech forward Darko Cohadarevic. Check out Pope punching Cohadarevic in the groin not once, but twice, in successive possessions. Here is the Seton Hall/Texas Tech Herb Pope nut shot video:
Here’s the best part, not only did the referees think Darko was faking it, but Cohadarevic said he actually liked it, “He just took a swing,” Cohadarevic said. “He just tried to win a game in the heat of the game and play hard, maybe a little dirty, but I like that.” I’m sure you like the competitive nature of the game but you could do without the nut shots. Everyone could.
