Kansas University basketball coach Bill Self was livid that junior Brannen Greene dunked the ball — with no Kansas State players playing defense and the rest of the Jayhawks merely letting the clock run out — in the closing seconds of Wednesday's game in Allen Fieldhouse.
“Brannen Greene ... we’ve put up with him doing some stuff in the past, but that was probably the biggest (bleep) move I’ve ever had a player do during a game,” Self said after KU’s 77-59 win over the Wildcats.
“To dunk the ball like that when the other team — even their players are going, ‘How disrespectful to the game.’ It certainly showed unbelievably poor sportsmanship. I apologize to K-State and their players. I guarantee that will never happen again or he will never be in the game at the end of the game.”
Before Kansas basketball coach Bill Self fielded questions from the media after the Jayhawks' win over Kansas State, he apologized to KU's rivals for Brannen Greene's last-second basket in a 77-59 win.
Of Greene, whose three-pointer and foul shot concluded the first-half scoring, Self added: “It was totally classless. I guarantee it will never happen again.”
Asked about the play, K-State coach Bruce Weber said: “That’s up to them. That’s their dealing.”
Asked if he would punish Greene, Self said, “I don’t know. He’s not my favorite though, right now.”
