Is there any hope for Hampton?

Edward Joyner, the University of Hampton’s head basketball coach, said he’ll need to have “Jesus on speed dial” to call for help when the Pirates play No. 1 overall seed Kentucky on Thursday in Louisville.
Joyner then proceeded to give Jesus a call, and Jesus hung up on him.
No 16-seed has ever upset a No. 1 seed in men’s Division I NCAA tournament history — not even once — but there have been some close calls, and No. 3 seeds Iowa State and Baylor have already fallen victims to 14-seeds Auburn Birmingham and Georgia State in Thursday’s surprising second round.
So, needless to say, Cal and the Cats won’t be taking the Pirates lightly.
