Given how close he came to being NC State’s basketball coach, it’s interesting that John Calipari has the exact same record as Jim Valvano
I just can’t get over what Jimmy V’s record might have looked like if:
(a) Rick Hartzell doen’t kill the Pack in 1989 with (Billy Packer’s words) “the worst call in NCAA Tournament History”, and
(b) V had the opportunity to have coached Fire & Ice (and Googs) into the NCAA Tournament in the early 90s.
