Sarcastic, hilarious and the ultimate level of shade.
That could be the best way to describe how Baylor forward Taurean Prince handled a reporter's question after his No. 5 Bears were shocked by No. 12 Yale in the first big upset of the 2016 NCAA Tournament on Thursday.
When asked how Yale out-rebounded Baylor, Prince proceeded to literally break down the act of grabbing a board.
"You go up and grab the ball off the rim when it comes off, and then you grab it with two hands, and then you come down with it," Prince said, while keeping a straight face. "That’s considered a rebound. So, they got more of those than we did."
Obviously, Prince wasn't having it after Baylor's early exit.
Giving him credit, Prince more than did his part to keep Baylor's chances strong, scoring 28 points and grabbing four of those rebounds. But in the end, it was 12th-seeded Yale notching its first-ever Tournament victory, which came at Baylor's expense.
Hey, at least Prince, a senior, is leaving college with a college basketball sound-bite to last a lifetime.
