College basketball fans, particularly student fans, have long looked for different ways to distract visiting teams during games. Some of the more creative methods have been displayed when opponents go to the line to attempt free throws, and such was the case with some fans at Davidson during last night’s game against Dayton. With 7:16 remaining in the game, and Davidson leading 66-49, Dayton shooting guard Jordan Sibert stepped up to attempt a pair of foul shots. It was then that TV cameras caught five Davidson fans, clad only in black speedos, dancing and gyrating in an attempt to throw off Sibert’s concentration.The tactic failed, as Sibert nailed both shots. Still, the Wildcats knocked off the 22nd-ranked Flyers, 77-60, and this quintet of fans left an indelible image on the minds of anyone who saw their stunt.

Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba has revealed that the wristband he wore during the club’s 4-1 win over Bournemouth was in support of Kalidou Koulibaly.Koulibaly was subjected to racist chants and monkey noises during Napoli’s 1-0 loss to Inter Milan last week Sunday by the Nerazzurri supporters.The Napoli defender and his manager Carlo Ancelotti were furious by the actions of the home fans at the San Siro and Ancelotti asked for the match to be stopped twice.The Senegal international was sent off late in the game for a second yellow card offence after sarcastically applauding the decision of the referee to book for a foul on Inter’s Matteo Politano.Pogba wore a white wristband as he scored a brace in United’s win over the Cherries at Old Trafford on Sunday.The France international explained on his official Instagram account afterward that it was a gesture of support to Koulibaly.“Well done guys beautiful way to finish the year. (Plus) honour handband for (Koulibaly)- 2019 say NO to racism,” Pogba wrote.Meanwhile, Ancelotti has revealed that Napoli will simply leave the pitch if similar incidents arise again in the future.He said: “It’s a shame because twice we asked for the match to be suspended for the racist chanting towards Koulibaly.”“It shook him – he’s a good-mannered player and he was bombarded by the stadium. Despite our requests and the chanting, the game wasn’t suspended. I think it should have been. Next time we’ll stop playing ourselves.”
