In the most recent installment in his "Forgotten Legends" interview series, CHN writer Jon Teitel caught up with UNCG great Kyle Hines.

Just days after their win in the SoCon tournament final, CHN writer Jon Teitel was able to catch up with Davidson forward Jake Cohen and guard JP Kulhman. Along with De'Mon Brooks these two have been integral parts of Bob McKillop's team, which also won the SoCon regular season title.
Jon Teitel: You brother Josh played football at Dartmouth. Who is the best athlete in the family?
Jake Cohen: That is a tough question. Josh is good at almost every sport he plays, so I guess he is the best.
