Class and its discontents

There really aren’t any discontented student-athletes on the USI men’s basketball team, not any that I know of,anyway. Coach Rodney Watson is always quick to point out that he has many players who do well in the classroom. He also believes that doing well in your schoolwork helps you become a better basketball player. “That’s what Joe Fan doesn’t understand,” he said while noting that forward Manny Ogunfolu — who got straight A’s this past semester — doesn’t have to worry about doing well in school. “Manny is not coming to summer school sweating whether he’s going to be eligible or not. He is working on his game. The fact of the matter is, he doesn’t put any extra stress on himself (by having classroom troubles). That’s what so beautiful about Manny.”
