UCLA hires a little bit of history

As the guys over at Bruins Nation phrased it: Mr. 4.8 Seconds is returning to college hoops.

Tyus Edney – he of the mad full-court dash against Missouri during the 1995 NCAA tournament – will join Ben Howland’s staff as the director of men’s basketball operations. It’s a good move for both the school (what Bruins fan doesn’t love Edney?) and Edney, who retired from professional hoops last year after a stint in Europe.

In fact, I think most everyone loves Edney. (Well, except Trojans and Missouri fans.) It’s hard not to smile when thinking of his game-winner vs. the Tigers. In fact, it’s enough to watch the thing right now.
