The Basketball Classic (TBC)
Jim Ferry (UMBC) — the former Nittany Lions interim head coach was immeidately picked up UMBC. He led them to a TBC berth, but their team was forced to forfeit their first round home match-up vs Merrimack due to the inability to field a healthy team.
Pat Chambers (Florida Gulf Coast, kind of?) — Pat’s new team the Eagles is also playing in TBC, beating Detroit Mercy last night in the first round. Chambers isn’t technically coaching the team yet as the previous coach will finish the duration of the season. Their second round opponent has yet to be announced.
