Hot Clicks: Halil Kanacevic gives finger to Villanova crowed; Hayden Panettiere

Hail Kanacevic :: AP

Mike of Westlake, Ohio, says, "Watching my alma mater Villanova last night, this guy from St. Joe's (Pa.), Halil Kanacevic, hits a shot and flicks off the Wildcats student section on his way back down the floor. Nothing came of it. He didn't get a technical or anything. Later in the game, with like 30 seconds to go and St. Joe's leading by a point, Kanacevic heads to the free throw line to shoot two. He promptly misses both, Villanova comes down and hits a 3 to take a two-point lead. With three seconds left and Villanova up by two, Kanacevic is inbounding the ball and tries to throw it off the Villanova player guarding the inbounds pass. The ball hits the Villanova player and then hits Kanacevic standing out of bounds ... giving the ball and the win to Villanova. If you're going to flick off the crowd, you sure as hell better back it up, and this d----- choked out hard." Here is a report on the game and Kanacevic's actions.
