SAN FRANCISCO (AP) - Utah's Larry Krystkowiak is taking his coaching example off the court - as a crime stopper.
Last month in Salt Lake City, Krystkowiak - a 6-foot-9 former NBA power forward - chased down and apprehended a bike thief on campus.
That made Krystkowiak's tale a hot topic of conversation at Pac-12 media day Thursday, where California coach Mike Montgomery insisted he would have no chance of pulling off a similar defensive stop across the bay in Berkeley.
With NCAA rules now allowing coaches to start practice early and more offseason on-court time with players, Krystkowiak says he has time in his day to pull off such successes away from the practice floor.
Krystkowiak also was part of stopping a thief who had swiped more than a dozen athletic department laptops.
