Thirty years coaching in the same major college program. National championship hardware won. Eventually fired, but asked to hang around by the school president.
Teams ready for first round at McKenzie Arena
12:15: You’re looking live into my apartment, and we’re getting started with LSU-Butler called by Jim Nantz and...Clark Kellogg!
