Andy Enfield just became one of the most desirable coaches in all of college basketball.
If you don’t know who that is, he’s the head coach of the Florida Gulf Coast Eagles, the No. 15 seed that just knocked off No. 2 seed Georgetown in the NCAA tournament.
The school he’s coaching at?
It has existed since 1991. The star of Friday night’s performance was Eddie Murray, a 6-foot-8 senior that threw down a series of vicious dunks on the Hoyas. He was born in 1989. He’s older than the school.
The program that Enfield is currently coaching only became Division I six years ago, and he already has them in the round of 32 in the NCAA tournament. That’s impressive.
It’s impressive enough that Enfield may have finally become the most desirable member of his household.
You see, Enfield’s wife is a super model. Her name was Amanda Marcum before she got married. She’s a super model. Legitimately. She’s been on the cover of Maxim. She’s not unattractive.
And now, thanks to how quickly and how effectively he’s built that program, he may be more wanted nationally than his wife.
Arizona State fans won’t get a chance to see Torian Graham take the floor this season, but he did sky over fellow teammates (and transfer) Shannon Evans on Friday night at the team’s Maroon and Gold Madness. The 6-foot-4 Graham is a former Buffalo commit — Evans also came from Buffalo — and both players will have to sit out the 2015-16 season due to NCAA transfer regulations.
Graham hasn’t had a chance to get into a Division I game, but he’ll be able to play for the Sun Devils next season. For now, fans can look forward to Graham’s athleticism on the wing in pregame dunk routines.
A former top-100 prospect, Graham also pulled off this ridiculous move in the dunk contest.
Kansas head coach Bill Self is known for being unique for the annual Late Night at the Phog and this season, he went with some parody videos centered around the recent DirecTV ads. In the two skits, Self plays himself — which acknowledges his many accolades — while playing alongside “short shorts Bill Self” and “graduate assistant Bill Self”.
Hard to say if these videos top Self showing up in a suit like Andrew Wiggins last year, but there do have good promotional value for the program and Self.
Kansas players also had their chance to shine, with both men’s and women’s teams doing dances. Perry Ellis and Jamari Traylor also attempted to lip sync to Michael Jackson. Freshman forward Carlton Bragg showed some solid ability on the piano, which got the crowd going. Bragg was also one of the strong points in a scrimmage.
