College basketball is thankful for Chris Obekpa's short shorts

New, comments

St. John's is squaring off against Minnesota on ESPNU Tuesday night, which means the college hoops world is gaining a better appreciation for the best sartorial staple in the game this season: Chris Obekpa's short shorts.
