“But it was a great game and we won. It’s probably one of the best games I’ve had the pleasure to coach.”
What’s the biggest misconception about junior college basketball?
“Some people look at it as a lower tier of basketball. They don’t realize how good the competition is, that we’re often playing with and against scholarship players. I wish more people would come watch and see how good it is.
“The other thing is that it’s not just about the basketball. Junior college is so much more cost effective and there as many benefits. And you do well, you’ve got automatic admission to a state school. You can’t beat that.”
What do you do to relax?
“Just getting away after the season with my wife and kids. Right now, I’m really enjoying helping coach my son Cameron’s seventh grade travel team. To me, that’s relaxing.”
What do you see yourself doing in 10 years?
“Probably doing what I’m doing now, coaching either on the collegiate or high school level. I just really love coaching — being with the kids, the comaraderie, the competition.”
