Saw this over at The Realests and it cracked me the hell up. The Daily News is running a Tournament preview like every other paper, but I think their capsule on San Diego tops them all….
FUN FACT: Power forward Rob Jones, a 6-5, 230-pound freshman, turned down football offers from such traditional powers as Notre Dame, Miami and Oregon to pursue a basketball career. He is the grandson of Jim Jones, the leader of the Jonestown jungle compound where more than 900 people were killed in 1978 in a mass murder/suicide.
Mass suicide is always fun and 900+ people dying just makes me giddy!
