Foot-in-Mouth Disease

February 28, 1987

Regarding Louisville Coach Brian O'Hara's comments on the Alemany-Louisville girls basketball game:

If the only way Louisville (with two All-Americans) can beat a team by three points is when an inexperienced team "chokes," then he isn't saying much for his own coaching or his own team. I don't suppose he mentioned that Louisville "choked" during the Christmas tournament in Santa Barbara against Gahr High and lost by 20 points.

Also, in the same tournament, Louisville lost another one by 20 points to Reno.

O'Hara is quick to resort to excuses when his team loses. When it lost to Chaminade in a 1985 league game, it was because "we were taking finals." Of course, no one else was taking finals that year. It seems that O'Hara can dish it out but he can't take it. It's too bad it wasn't lockjaw that hit Louisville instead of chicken pox.
