Drew Timme had great interview after Gonzaga win
Drew Timme went viral on Saturday night for the great interview he gave after Gonzaga’s comeback win over Memphis.
Gonzaga trailed Memphis by 10 at the half and by as many as 12, but they came back to tie the game and win it 82-78. Timme was a monster and led Gonzaga with 25 points and 14 rebounds. He shot 10/16 in the game.
Timme was interviewed by TBS’ Andy Katz after the comeback win and had some funny moments.
Katz said that he heard Timme delivering an impassioned halftime message to his teammates. He asked Timme what the big man said. Timme obliged but humorously had to censor himself.
“I said, ‘I don’t give a flying F what happens at the end of the game. Whether we lose or win the game, we’re not going out as no soft guys. Leave it out on the floor because it could be your last 20 (minutes),'” Timme says he told his team.
"I don't give a flying F" 😂🔥

Timme obviously used the F-word when talking with his teammates. He also undoubtedly used the B-word for “soft guys.”
Credit to Timme, who not only played well, motivated his team, and led them, but also for his incredible job of censoring himself while on live TV. That’s a guy who can think on his toes and come through under pressure.
