Student Manager Steals Show in Heated College Hoops Game With His Fired-Up Mopping Skills

Ole Miss and Mississippi State played the basketball version of their heated Egg Bowl rivalry Tuesday night in Oxford, and an unexpected character stole the show. And no, it wasn’t Morgan Freeman, who was in attendance for the game.

Student manager Kyle Wakefield, a senior at Ole Miss, was the star of the night thanks to his electric mop-up efforts. At one point in the second half, Wakefield sprinted from one end of the floor to the other to grab a towel to finish a clean-up job on the floor, then sprinted back to his post underneath the basket to a standing ovation. He then gestured to a school-record crowd of more than 10,000 to make noise to cap his 15 seconds of fame, and the crowd roared to life once again.
