Reactions from BB&T Classic Press Conference

Three out of the four coaches in this year’s BB&T Classic were present at the press conference this afternoon. Coach Shaka Smart of VCU, unfortunately, could not be there due to a family emergency. My news piece on Coach Lonergan and the tournament aired today on WRGW News at 6.

I also got a chance to talk to Coach Lonergan afterward…and yes, there WILL be contests at Colonial Invasion next week.

And no conversation about the BB&T would be complete without Washington Post columnist John Feinstein, one of the most influential individuals involved. For the record, it was he who first revealed at WRGW’s Mid-Major Madness last April that the Colonials would be taking on the VCU Rams in the Classic. This is what he had to say about this year’s coaching field.
