Willie says Arkansas fans blew up his phone with texts


Everyone remembers when Mississippi State fans found DeMarcus Cousins’ phone number and bombarded him with prank calls? That prompted the infamous “Call Me” gesture and photo, which will forever live in UK basketball infamy. Today, Willie Cauley-Stein told reporters that Arkansas fans did the same thing to him:

“There’s so much stuff said. It’s all really funny. One time at Arkansas they got ahold of my number somehow. They were texting me and stuff. Then at the game they were like, ‘I’m the person you were texting.’ I’m like, ‘Oh, makes sense now. Oh my gosh. He’s for real. That’s him.’ ”

Willie had a terrible outing vs. Arkansas last season, scoring only 2 points in UK’s overtime loss. There were also rumors that Willie’s girlfriend at the time attended Arkansas, and the two broke up prior to that game, which may explain how Razorback fans got his number.

Any guesses as to some of the things Willie and the Arkansas fans texted about? Knowing Willie, he probably responded with some pretty random stuff. I’ll start: Walking Dead, the chicken vs. the egg debate, SpongeBob SquarePants, tie dye…
