Grootfaam fan interaction

When the team came out for the second half, Grootham turned around and said something at a fan. Then the fan was immediately taken out. Does anyone know what happened?

I love having Smith as our coach, and I'll trust him to do what's right for this team, but I'd like to see us accept the new direction of basketball. The traditional PG position is a dinosaur, and has been replaced by the PBH (primary ball handler). This is the team's best player as long as he has ...

I like this video better than the ones by USU football. You can see the play develop and get context for the game. The new ones are too rushed and too sketchy for my taste. I am probably not their target audience. Thanks for posting this.

What I've liked from Brock during this stretch is his defensive effort. He's been like static cling on that end of the floor. We'll see how the offensive side develops over time.
That is what I noticed as well, it appears that coach Smith is starting his best defensive players right now IMO.
