Kaleb Tarczewski, a 7-footer from Southborough, Mass., had to decline interview requests at the Adidas Invitational in Indianapolis last week. "My coach doesn't want us doing interviews," he said.

So, reporters approached the AAU coach, John Carroll, to explain this unusual policy.

"I don't want to sound like a jerk," Carroll said before motioning toward a player from the opposing team talking to a reporter courtside after the game.

"His team lost by 30 and he's talking to reporters? He should go back to the hotel and think about how to get better..."
