Butler forward Matt Howard has been one of the darlings of the NCAA tournament after scoring game-winning baskets against Old Dominion and Pittsburgh to get the Bulldogs into the Sweet 16. But the one part of Howard's game that has come under some criticism this week has been his socks.
There's nothing really wrong with Howard's socks. They're old, tattered and a little gray, but clean, Howard said. However, they've been worn so many times that the elastic no longer allows them to stick to his leg. So they kind of just scrunch down around his ankle in an A.C. Slater "Saved By the Bell" sort of way.
