After draining a clutch fourth-quarter three to take the lead against Villanova yesterday, St. Joseph’s forward Halil Kanacevic whipped the crowd into a frenzy. Too bad he was at the Pavilion.
As he backed down the court facing the Villanova students, he raised three fingers in the air. Then he lowered two of them. The ‘Nova student section had been fairly sedate. So had most of their fans. That changed instantly.
After sufficiently revving up his opponents’ fans, Kanasevic proceeded to give away the game, missing two free throws with 45 seconds to play, and throwing a ball off his own player with five seconds left. [Daily News]
