First, the BYU basketball team gave us a little inspiration with their wonderfully nerdy lip sync of a Chicago hit song. This time, the Cougars went with hip-hop to hype the team’s Nov. 2 exhibition against Alaska-Anchorage.
We’re liking the fresh attempt. Junior guard Matt Carlino knows the words to Skee-Lo’s “I Wish,” and lip syncs it like a boss.
Interestingly, the song’s trademark line, “I wish I was a little bit taller, I wish I was a baller,” doesn’t really apply here. Carlino is 6’2″ and plays DI basketball. For those wondering, rapper Skee-Lo is only 5’8″.
Between Kansas State’s Fresh Prince parody and BYU’s newest dub, the upcoming NCAA basketball season is showing a lot of ’90s flair.
