April 2009

What a fun and hectic time I had in Detroit for the Final Four. It was so great being back in the city where I spent so much time earlier in my career coaching at the University of Detroit and the Pistons. The weekend is always filled with many appearances and signings as well as several ESPN broadcasts. This year I had so much fun doing engagements for The Hartford, Anaconda Sports, Hooters, and Fathead.

The Final Four is truly a remarkable sporting weekend - filled with passion, spirit and pride. North Carolina proved why they were #1 for the most part of the regular season, with dominating performances in the semis and finals. Tyler Hansborough has been such a remarkable person and player to cover for the past four years - it was nice to see him celebrate a national championship with his team. He is a winner in every sense of the word.
