We all know just how crazy NCAA rules are sometimes when it comes to violations and “illegal benefits” — even if they are ridiculous. I mean, a coach can’t even give a player cream cheese to put on a bagel. Unreal. Well, one Oklahoma Sooners basketball player trolled the NCAA so hard on Sunday night that it made everyone laugh.
Playing Pop-A-Shot is an activity that everyone seems to love and James Fraschilla went out to play and win some harmless tickets from the game — or so he wondered.

The perfect response to a perfect question. Athletes know just how ridiculous some NCAA rules are and it seems like anything and everything is a violation these days.
Fraschilla took the subject lightly and joked around in an awesome way, trolling the NCAA.
Yes, he did dominate the Pop-A-Shot game and won a ton of tickets, but he wanted to know if he was violating some rule by winning a toy animal.
Well played, James.
