Melissa McCarthy’s career has skyrocketed over the past year and most recently, she made a return appearance as host of “Saturday Night Live”.

As expected, McCarthy delivered some comedic gems on the show, most notably in a skit that spoofed the Rutgers basketball scandal that recently resulted in the firing of coach Mike Rice and dismissal of athletic director Tim Pernetti.

McCarthy/’SNL’ spoof the Rutgers scandal

In the skit, McCarthy plays Sheila Kelly, a basketball coach that makes Rice look like a sweet man with a heart of gold.

Throughout the bit that also pokes fun at ESPN’s “Outside the Lines”, Kelly is seen slinging bricks, launching balls, spying on interviews, demanding meals and most amusingly, driving a golf cart onto the basketball court.

But enough discussion about McCarthy and ‘Saturday Night Live’, view the spoof for yourself and see if you think that it’s spot on.
