How many times have you talked about Harvard basketball? I've done it twice

Earlier today I met Michael Murphy, Assistant Coach for the Columbia University basketball team.  He told me that they're playing Harvard this weekend.  What a coincidence!  I'd just seen Harvard play...

I let him know that I just saw Harvard defeat George Washington University a couple of weeks ago at the Charles E. Smith Center.  I think he was impressed that I knew that Tommy Amaker was Harvard's coach.  ****  I know a lot of people and my friends know a lot of people so you never know...  I just might know some of your people and often I know more than you'd expect... 

Anyway, it just goes to show that you never know who you're talking to and yes, when it comes to basketball I definitely know "stuff"...

Incidentally, did you know that NBA veteran Donyell Marshall is on Karl Hobb's staff?  Can you see him looking at the camera from the huddle?  My guess is that the University of Connecticut connection didn't hurt.

It was my first time watching a George Washington University men's basketball home game, but I have to admit, I had a good time.  The Colonials have dropped 4 straight including the loss to Harvard so hopefully, they rebound in their next game against St. Louis.
