As Parsons turned to run back up-court, teammate Vernon Macklin swings his towel in celebration from the bench. Unfortunately, the towel snap hits Parsons in the most sensitive of all regions, leaving him doubled over in pain for the next two minutes or so.
Credit Parsons for bravely still trying to get back on defense because most of us would have fallen to the ground on the spot. The senior also responded with a superb effort in double overtime, scoring nine of his 18 points to help seal the crucial SEC East victory.
The untold story is how Parsons retaliated in the locker room afterward. If major college basketball is anything like junior high PE classes, Parsons probably got revenge on Macklin with a towel snap of his own.
