Just because Duke has been bounced from the 2016 NCAA Tournament doesn’t mean the Blue Devils are done grabbing headlines. No, while Oregon and Oklahoma are playing for a spot in the Final Four, fans are still talking about whether Coach K should have admonished Ducks star Dillon Brooks for his late-game behavior and recycling the whole Grayson Allen-Ted Cruz thing yet again.
This time it’s Ted Cruz himself, not a reporter or Internet meme, who gets the credit as the source of this chatter.
“I don’t have nearly the hops to be him,” Cruz told CNN’s Betsy Klein. “I will say I wish I did — that young man can fly. The video of him winning the slam dunk championship in high school — that is crazy how he can jump. I’m proud of my six-inch vertical. The only way I see the rim is standing on a ladder.”
