Eric Musselman – Egg Carton Speech
Prior to our game against New Mexico in the Mountain West Tournament, we had a record of 18-12. We had lost 3 of our last 5 games. As we were preparing for New Mexico, one of the coaches stumbled upon an egg carton as they were getting ready to empty the trash. The egg carton signified each of our 12 losses as there is space for 12 eggs in the carton and we felt as though in each of our 12 losses we “laid an egg”.
