Injured St. Bonaventure coach in scooter topples on postgame handshakes

Don't worry -- everybody seems to be okay.

St. Bonaventure coach Mark Schmidt ruptured his Achilles in practice on Dec. 19. Nobody would've blamed the coach for taking it easy, but the coach fought on, hopping on one leg while shouting instructions and wheeling around on a scooter when he really needed to move. It was all going fine, until....

The Bonnies beat UMass, 69-55, but as Schmidt scooted past UMass coach Derek Kellogg, a wheel got tangled with a leg and BOOM.

It seems as if Schmidt is okay. We think he probably should try crutches.
