According to Lindsey Jones of USA TODAY Sports, Jets’ quarterback Tim Tebow ended up giving the Wichita State men’s basketball team a pep talk while his plane was refueling in Wichita, Kansas.
Tebow’s plane stopped to refuel at the Mid-Continent Airport in Wichita Sunday afternoon, and the New York Jets quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner was on the ground when Wichita State’s charter plane – carrying the basketball team, pep band, and cheerleaders -landed. Tebow joined the team on the bus before the Shockers headed back to campus.
The Shockers upset No. 1-seeded Gonzaga Saturday night in Salt Lake City and will play in the Sweet 16 next week in Los Angeles.
