My guess is that thought none of use were in the locker room after Saturday’s loss, we could use our background knowledge, pick out a few words and reasonably describe the scene. Bob Huggins usually treats his players to honesty and chases it with volume for emphasis.
Our descriptions, quite likely, would have been wrong.
The doors protecting the locker room were closed for about 30 minutes after the game and we heard nothing loud or alarming as we waited outside.
Turns out it wasn’t much different inside.
Huggins eventually opened the doors inside Mackey Arena and headed to his contractually obligated radio appearance, but his face wasn’t flush, his breaths were even and he simply sipped a bottle of water and screwed the cap back on top.
That was not the norm, either.
“It seems like he’s just over that phase,” guard Jabarie Hinds said.
That doesn’t seem like a good sign.
