Colorado coach Tad Boyle said he “felt an emptiness” in his stomach while trying to guide the Buffaloes to a victory in the NCAA Men’s Basketball Tournament on Monday in the midst of a supermarket shooting in Boulder.
Boyle spoke to reporters about the shooting in the city where the school is located. At least 10 people were killed, including a police officer and authorities said a suspect was in custody. He called the shooting a “senseless act of violence.”
“It puts basketball in its proper place. Win or lose tonight, I felt an emptiness in my stomach. Another senseless act of violence that we’ve experienced as a country many, many times,” Boyle said after the team’s loss to Florida State.
