Did anyone else think his antics after the game were incredibly poor? If you weren't there...
Foster walked to the end of the bench to talk to someone in the crowd (I assume his father or AAU coach), then proceeded to distance himself from the team after the game. An assistant got him in line for medal ceremony, but he was a good 10-12' behind team, drinking out of a water bottle as team pics were being done with trophy/medals. It really did not make him look good. Opens up lots of discussions for the off-season, that's for sure.

I did not see what happened. But for a 15-16 year old playing in his biggest game up to this date, being a nationally ranked player, I find it hard to put myself in his shoes. But my guess is he is disappointed with how his team played? I think they may have been able to play a bit better against Nicolet.

thcrackerjack -- yeah, that's what we wondered as we watched. We happened to be sitting on that end of the Kohl Center, so maybe that's what drew our eyes to him and the anti-team stuff. 

I hear you on disappointment, gstacy, but I've seen a lot of games at the State tournament. EVERY star player is incredibly disappointed in any loss, especially in the Championship. However, nearly all have shared disappointment with teammates, had teammates/coaches console them, etc. I don't remember seeing such a display of selfishness post-game. It was strange that the Head Coach was not involved with him at all afterward, I thought.

Dudes - you may think that's OK behavior and that's fine. It seemed pretty over the top. You didn't see the Hayden kid or either Davis dissing his team after a way more devastating loss about 28 hours earlier. Class matters too. Love the kid's talent, and to be honest I blame the adults more than #11

He was probably just mad the rest of his team didn't bother getting into shape for the season.

I didn't want to put anything out there until the season's dust settled, but I have heard of several high-profile players heavily-rumored to be on the move out-of-state before next year.

I will tell you a shoe company may or may not be involved.

Complete shocker that he'd be one of them ÃƒÂ°Ã…¸â„¢â€ž 

Long is graduating and Tre White is likely headed back to Texas today. The cupboard at Washingtoni is bare. Plus, the shoe company influence...

He does looks like an NBA player.  

Curious who the other players are though?

Don't know if you are being serious or just exasperated by that situation.  If he does skip town soon what does that say about him? What does that say about those that went to bat for him and signed off on the move being legit to get him eligible at Washington?  Either they got played or they were in on it.

Let them go and take all the transfer, recruiting, agents/handlers, and the foolish self promotion BS with you. Time for the WIAA to get serious and tell schools this is what we stand for and what we offer, if you aren't for that then don't join.

Yes because heaven forbid these kids do whats best for themselves.  

Kids should never transfer for better opportunities or self promote because organizations like the WIAA and the NCAA always have the kids best interests in mind.

I am with you Eagle on this. Yes it was a loss and it hurt.  However, you win and lose as a team.  Get in line -  shake hands like young men and accept the silver ball with class and respect.  For the awards, all players should take their hoods off, thank the presenter of the medal, get their picture taken, and get the team picture taken.  You are right - Class does matter.  And when the lack of class is shown, people take notice.  And not addressing it also gets noticed. 

For some kids, they never get the chance to play at the Kohl Center and those that do, will talk about what a privilege it is.  As you pointed out, the Central kids accepted a tough loss, as did the Bangor kids who had their hearts broke at the buzzer as did Osseo.  Those coaches and kids represented their schools as we all would expect at the state tournament.  Hats off to them.

Did you read about what Iron Mountain did after their controversial loss in the Michigan State Championships? Several players took off their medals immediately and the coach left the trophy on the table...but since everybody (including the media) reflexively hates officials, and is putting all their focus on that it doesn't seem to be getting much traction...😏

I know how the game ended, but did not know the aftermath.  That is absolutely ridiculous.  It is wrong in so many ways.  And we wonder why we have some of the issues we do today.
