Vander Blue hit the last-second basket that knocked Davidson out of the NCAA men's basketball tournament last season. Davidson led by nine but Marquette, a three-seed, got hot late. And there was Blue going to the hoop, a dribble-drive for the winning hoop.
What goes around comes around. Blue is on the roster of the Philadelphia 76ers, who were hammered in an exhibition by the Charlotte Bobcats last week. He has a chance to stick.
Also working for the 76ers is former Davidson star Brandon Williams. He was hired last month as general manager of the Delaware 87ers of the NBDL.
Bob McKillop, head coach of Davidson, says after the Marquette loss he went to his hotel room, shut the door tight and screamed. He would scream about 10 more times.
Fans of the Wildcats can relate.
Be interesting to hear a conversation between Williams and Blue.
