Why did Ralph Sampson text UNCW head coach Kevin Keatts on Wednesday?


ORLANDO, FL (WWAY) — Ralph Sampson is one of the best players in the history of college basketball. Sampson is a Virginia grad. During Wednesday’s media session in Orlando UNCW head basketball coach Kevin Keatts revealed that Sampson texted him early Wednesday morning. “I’ve got a tremendous respect for Virginia,” Keatts said. “It’s a beautiful school and a beautiful campus. It’s an hour 15 minutes away from where I grew up. I actually got a text from Ralph Sampson today.” The next question from a reporter was a request to know what the text said. “You know I was trying to figure it out,” Keatts said. “He said to call me and I don’t know if he was trying to get information from me or not. I have known Ralph for a long time. What a college career he had.  I’m not going to call him back til the game is over because I don’t want to be put in that situation where he would ask me some questions.”
