Ok, Let’s Go Double or Nothing…Posted by rtmsf on December 12th, 2008
Arizona sophomore forward Jamelle Horne is making a name for himself in the desert this season for more than just his boneheaded play against UAB a month ago (see below video for a refesher on that particular abomination).
He’s averaging 8 ppg and 4 rpg as a starter, but his most recent newsworthy moment came after Wednesday night’s game vs. San Diego State. From the Tucson Citizen:
Arizona sophomore forward Jamelle Horne apologized for a flippant comment he made about a wager he made against former San Diego area high school teammates in UA’s 69-56 win over San Diego State. “I want to apologize for my comments last night and say that no wager took place,” said Horne, in a statement through the school’s sports information office. “I understand that sports and gambling do not mix. In an effort to be funny after a tough game, I made a poor choice of words and now realize that I should choose my words more carefully.”
The wager in question was supposedly a dinner bet. There’s no word yet as to whether if, in a similar bet with Mike Davis, he was heavy on UAB when he made his foolish intentional foul to give the Blazers the victory a few weeks ago.
