A Time-out for college basketball
It's my turn to give a shout-out to my alma mater, Philadelphia Textile (er, Phila U). This past weekend, men's basketball coach Herb Magee tied Bobby Knight's wins record at 902. (the Philadelphia Inquirer reported on it yesterday morning) One more win tomorrow night at home in the East Falls neighborhood against Goldey-Beacom will put him past Knight atop the all-time NCAA coaching wins list. With this his 30th season of at least 20 wins, being a great role model on and off the court for young men, and surrounding himself with some of the best local basketball talent, it goes without saying that Herb Magee is a true Philadelphia Sports Legend.
