I received this e-mail from reader Robert J. Marino this morning. I pass it along, for your consideration …
The men’s basketball season will draw to a close March 9th at Gampel. I have been impressed by Coach Ollie and the players. Under incredibly difficult circumstances, the retirement of Hall of Fame Coach Jim Calhoun, the APR post season sanctions, and the transfers it prompted, this team has remained focused and played hard. I would like to recognize that effort.
… Win or lose, these young men and coaches have given us something special this year that ought to be recognized. We can’t give them a post season, but we can let them leave the court to an outward show of affection and respect for our team.
The proposal is simple enough: (I) just ask everyone to stay until the end of the game and have everyone stand and clap until the team leaves the court.
Robert. J. Marino
