After the Florida Gators won the NCAA Football Title, a lot of folks gave some of the credit to Ron Zook. After all, Zook assembled much of the talent that Urban Meyer molded into a champion.
We think it only fair that Henry Bibby receive the same sort of accolades for turning USC into a basketball school.
"I am elated that these three guys that I brought in are doing so well," Bibby said yesterday after the Sixers went through some light shooting and film study at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. "I'm happy for USC. It's been a football school for so long, and I think I did a lot to bring basketball to SC."
So, hats off to Mr. Bibby for putting together the talent that turned USC into a basketball school and has made them an annual contender in this year's Sweet Sixteen.
We'll try and forget the fact that they fired him and are letting a white guy reap all the benefits now.
