Well, half of my night is going to be shot looking up coaching data.
That's what happens when the entertaining (to me, anyway) combination of Gary Williams and Tom Penders get paired up in an NCAA tournament game.
Both have 600+ victories, and both have been around pretty much forever (or what seems like it).
Williams was transient early in his career, as many coaches are in climbing the ladder.
Penders was transient ... throughout. He's on his seventh head coaching gig, though he did have a 10-year run at Texas.
Anyway, the two have met three times over the years.
Once was 2001, when the Terps beat George Washington 71-63 in the BB&T Classic.
Another was in 2000, when the Colonials sent SirValiant Brown daggers all over the place in a 74-69 victory in the BB&T final.
And the other was the 1995 NCAA tournament, when Joe Smith dropped 31 points, 21 rebounds and seven blocks in an 82-68 second round victory for the Terps.
So that's the background. And now you know.
