AUBURN HILLS, Mich.--We're talkin' about practice, but not the way you might think.
We're talkin' about the Detroit Pistons' Rasheed Wallace, who spent two seasons at North Carolina after a terrific career at Simon Gratz High, celebrating the Tar Heels' 98-63 victory over Michigan State Wednesday night in front of an estimated 20,000 fans (including Wallace) at Ford Field.
Wallace went through the Pistons' practice today wearing powder blue sneakers, a clear salute to his school.
''We had to come all the way up from Chapel Hill for that practice,'' Wallace said impishly. ''We could've stayed in Chapel Hill and practiced.''
