Syracuse Orange Stars Trevor Cooney and Michael Gbinije Get Schooled in Wheelchair Basketball [VIDEO]
Syracuse Orange stars Michael Gbinije and Trevor Cooney knew playing basketball from a wheelchair would be hard, they just didn't know how hard. They soon found out at the Celebrity Wheelchair basketball game to benefit Sitrin.
The Sitrin all stars played circles around everyone, even teasing Cooney and Gbinije with the ball and showing off their amazing talents. After Cooney's first shift without scoring one basket he joked, "I was confused coach. I didn't know whether we were playing man to man or zone."
The Syracuse stars started to get the hang of shooting from the wheelchair by the second quarter but the celebrities still lost, again. "It was a fun experience. It was harder than I expected. I have a lot of respect for those guys. They're talented in what they do," said Gbinje following the game.
