Brown's Jesse Agel (11-20, 5-9)
In his latest coaches interview, CHN writer Jon Teitel caught up with former Brown and Penn head coach Glen Miller, who is now the Director of Men's Basketball Administration at Connecticut under his college coach (Jim Calhoun). Miller won 93 games at Brown and led the Bears to the NIT in 2003, eventually taking over for Fran Dunphy at Penn and leading the Quakers to the 2007 NCAA Tournament.
February is a great time for college basketball, but with 149 D1 games scheduled on Saturday, there's sure to be some duds. The games below are hideous, either due to the wide disparity in opponents or the utter lack of quality between the sides.
#25 Cornell vs Brown - 7:00
-- Brown is 5-14 against D1 competition. Meanwhile, Cornell's won their last 3 Ivy games by 36, 34, and 26. This will get ugly, real ugly.
Jackson St vs Alcorn St - 6:30
Ranking the 8 Ivy League coaches is no easy task: One of them has never been a head coach before, two others coached their 1st Ivy games last year, and none have served a full decade as an Ivy head coach. As we get ready for another college basketball season, here is a look at who is doing the best job of keeping up with the Joneses...literally.
1. Glen Miller - Penn
(223-184 record in 17 years as head coach at Connecticut College/Brown/Penn)
Providence, RI - TJ Sorrentine, a Pawtucket, Rhode Island native and the leader of the Vermont basketball team that upset Syracuse in the opening round of the 2005 NCAA Championship, has been named an assistant basketball coach at Brown in an announcement made by Bears' head coach Jesse Agel.
Sorrentine will be reunited with Agel, who guided him as an associate head coach at Vermont and recruited Sorrentine to the Catamounts' basketball program.
