We have a Chiefs fan (and his tattoo) playing in the NCAA Tournament

Watch out, Kentucky. The Hampton basketball team, which faces No. 1 overall seed Kentucky in the first round of the NCAA tournament, has a Kansas City Chiefs fan playing for them. (OK, that probably means they will lose in the first round but let's just ignore that.)

Hampton played Manhattan in the play-in game last night. I wasn't watching the game but plenty of people tweeted me a version of this picture. Note the tattoo.

That's Quinton Chievous and he is apparently pretty good after scoring 15 points and grabbed 13 boards on Tuesday night before exiting with a sprained ankle. His dad is Derrick Chievous, who is Missouri's all-time leading scorer after averaging 19.9 points a game during his career in Columbia. The elder Chievous went on to play in the NBA and abroad but I am guessing that Missouri connection is where the Chiefs tie-in comes from.

Also, the Chiefs fan can dunk.
