As much as he may have wanted to watch his alma mater, Villanova, play in the Elite Eight, Toronto Raptors point guard Kyle Lowry knows that part of his job is to talk to reporters after games.
So he was a total professional after Saturday night's 115-91 victory over the New Orleans Pelicans and held his postgame media session—while watching the Wildcats play the Kansas Jayhawks.
Lowry fielded questions as he watched the intense NCAA tournament game, though he did interrupt himself a few times with reactions.
Villanova pulled out a 64-59 victory over No. 1-seeded Kansas to advance to the Final Four, making Lowry one happy Wildcat alum:
FINAL FOUR BABY!! Nova nation baby— Kyle Lowry (@Klow7) March 27, 2016
I'm so proud of them boys I've seen the work they put in!!! They deserve this!!— Kyle Lowry (@Klow7) March 27, 2016
Villanova will play the Oklahoma Sooners in Houston next Saturday, the same day the Raptors play a road game against the San Antonio Spurs. Hopefully Lowry will be able to focus enough during the game to help Toronto battle against one of the best teams in the NBA.
Considering San Antonio is about a three-hour drive from Houston, he might be a bit distracted.
