Check a VIDEO of the Orange messing about during practice inside the Carmelo K. Anthony Basketball Center.

According to Trevor Hass, assistant sports editor of The Daily Orange, “Jerami Grant and B.J. Johnson channeled their inner Haavard Vad Petersson and Christoffer Svae. Grant rolled a basketball forward, flaunting the same silky touch he’s developed around the basket. Johnson used a broom to brush away the imaginary ice as the ball trickled toward midcourt.

“The duo imitated curling, a sport Vad Petersson and Svae play for team Norway.”
