The Official Wife of the Mid-Majority™, little red-haired darling that she is, is still learning about basketball. "Kyle," she asked me last night while we were watching some game tape. "What does 'crashing the glass' mean?"If only this particular game was on teevee, so I could show her exactly what that quirky hoops colloquialism means. Last night in Little Rock, 6'8" Rashad Jones-Jennings crashed the glass 30 times
, which is eight times more than anyone in D1 had this season.
OK, so UALR's opponents last night, fellow Arkansas satellite Pine Bluff, couldn't throw anyone taller than 6'6" at Jones-Jennings, who's one hyphen away from being his own one-man law firm. And yeah, the Golden Lions (you'll have to read between the lines here) sorely, undeniably crave killer-instinct. But 30 rebounds is some serious, serious glass work - whether you're cleaning it, wiping it, Windexing it, or crashing it.
