Jahii Carson’s mom vents frustration on Twitter

The Arizona State Sun Devils’ NCAA Tournament hopes took a huge hit Wednesday night with a 79-74 overtime loss to UCLA at Pauley Pavilion.

One of the repeating themes in many of ASU’s losses this season is that the Sun Devils can’t seem to get all of their key rotation players playing well at the same time.

Freshman guard Jahii Carson was excellent, scoring 22 points and dishing out seven assists. Senior wing Carrick Felix had 16 points and a career-high 18 rebounds. Sophomore Jonathan Gilling did have a key lapse in judgment in a one-possession game late in the overtime period, but without his six three-pointers, ASU doesn’t extend the game to OT.

On the other side of the coin, guards Evan Gordon and Chris Colvin couldn’t get untracked offensively, both going scoreless on a combined 0-for-6 shooting night.

Such losses are frustrating, especially when the win is there for the taking, but maybe nobody was more frustrated than Vanae Carson, Jahii’s mother. If you don’t believe it, just check out her Twitter feed from Wednesday night.

Vanae also took the time to respond to others tweets about her son.

But they didn’t stop there.

We’re not saying Mrs. Carson isn’t accurate with at least some of her observations, but she’s probably putting her son in a difficult situation with fellow social media savvy teammates.

After all, Jahii has at least four games left in a Sun Devil uniform. At least.
