Tennessee Basketball

My NCAA tourny bracket was pretty much toast by the end of the first weekend, so I've had very little to get excited about in the last week when it comes to college basketball.

But here's some excitement: Tennessee has hired a new coach, Cuonzo Martin, a Non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma survivor. You can't go wrong with an NHL survivor as a coach, as Missouri State has found out over the last three years.

While UT is losing a bit of a nut by letting go of Bruce Pearl, they're also losing someone with strong connections to the cancer community, who apparently changed more than one life. I'm sure Coach Martin will do his part to take up the slack.

And I hope especially that my mother-in-law enjoys this bit of good news.....
