Arizona basketball player borrows Marshawn Lynch's media strategy

Thursday January 29th, 2015

Arizona Wildcats guard T.J. McConnell knows a great opportunity when he sees one.

So when he sat down in front of the media following the team's game against the Oregon Ducks on Wednesday night, he seized the moment by giving a great opening statement.

Since Lynch's non-answers seem to have taken the nation by storm, many other players will likely be using this sports equivalent of pleading the fifth in the coming days.

McConnell, though, quickly lets it be known that he is actually up for answering questions. After he shot 1.000 from the floor with five assists in the Wildcats' victory, of course he is excited to talk to the media.
