The hot rivalry between Detroit Mercy and Valparaiso continued Thursday night at Calihan Hall on UDM’s campus. The game included a blown 22-point lead by Detroit, a few showtime dunks by the Titans’ Doug Anderson and a incredibly dirty foul by Valpo’s by Bobby Capobianco that sent him to the showers early.
Anderson picked a Valpo player’s dribble at half court mid-way through the second half and was sizing up a windmill jam when Capobianco came from behind with a clothesline type move right out of WWE. After a brief review at the monitor, officials quickly tossed him. It was pure thuggery and got the attention of everyone at Calihan Hall, including veteran ball boy Trey.
Trey has been a ball boy/floor mopper-upper for a couple years now and couldn’t pass up the opportunity to taunt Capobianco as he was escorted out of the gym.
Well job, young man. You deserve a boost in your allowance.
Valpo came back to win the game 89-88, but Trey certainly won the night.
