Curtis Kelly interrupts Gonzaga's junior prom night.

But Asprilla was never happy as a Wildcat, neither with his role on the team nor his unnecessary shouty coach who thinks he's a latin Sean Connery, and left the program to play professionally. (Or so he said - he later transferred to Canisius instead.) Backup big man Wally Judge also decided to transfer, and suddenly Kansas State had lost much of the vaulted frontcourt depth that had made them what they were.
