A basketball story in the summer

Alabama Crimson Tide basketball coach Anthony Grant is featured in the Sunday Focus of the Miami Herald. The story explores Grant’s background, and is a great opportunity for Tide fans to better understand the new men’s basketball coach.

The Herald provides details like this: “Added Rodriguez: ‘The best thing about him was that he was an excellent teammate. I’ve never seen a guy take so much pleasure in his teammates’ success. He was the original towel-waver on the bench. It’s great when your best player is so unselfish.’

“That might explain why Grant was the only student to receive a standing ovation during Miami High’s 1983 graduation ceremony.”
