BYU had some excitement even before their first game
BYU’s men’s basketball team managed to break the monotony of life in the NCAA tournament bubble this week when players staged a rescue mission to free one of their own from a stuck elevator.
On Wednesday, junior guard Jesse Wade got stuck in a hotel elevator while trying to meet his teammates for dinner. His coach and teammates initially responded by entertaining him via FaceTime; They then decided to take matters into their own hands and set him free.
Wade posted images of the rescue on Twitter Thursday night, showing his teammates opening the elevator doors with their hands to create a space wide enough for him to pass through. (He’s lucky he’s 6’1 “, 175 pounds. Can you imagine if 7’3” Matt Haarms was the one there?)
They even took a photo of the team after releasing Wade to mark the occasion.
Glad it worked for Wade and the rescue team, but isn’t this something that should be left to trained professionals like a firefighter or maintenance worker? My friend Christian must have gotten stuck in the elevator on the way to my college apartment five or six times and not once did my friends and I decide to open the door ourselves. What if one of the players has the door closed on their hand and misses the game against UCLA with some broken fingers?
Wade’s elevator mishap also made its way into the Cougars’ fun pre-coronavirus test routine. Players enter the room to have their noses wiped as if they were pregame introductions, and a member of the medical staff introduces the boys as if they were an announcer from PA: “6 ‘7”, from Kansas City, Missouri. .. “
Wade was introduced as, “Recently Released” and proceeded to pantomime by taking a ride in an elevator and exploding.
If you’re looking for a team to shoot in the tournament, maybe the Cougars are the one. His enthusiasm is contagious.
