Rollie’s team beats Isiah’s team


A team coached by Isiah Thomas (Florida International) lost to a team coached by Rollie Massimino (Northwood) in a college basketball exhibition game last night.

As David Letterman used to ask band leader Paul Shaffer "Is this anything?"

Well, it's something if you didn't know Massimino, the former and disgraced UNLV coach, is still pacing the sidelines at an NAIA school.

Actually, this is Rollie's fourth year at Northwood, Isiah's first at Florida International.

OK, the world can go on turning.


Upon taking the job at Florida International, Isiah Thomas said he would donate his first year's salary back to the school although there's probably somebody with the CBA's Sioux Falls Skyforce he still owes money to.

You may recall that Thomas purchased the CBA in 1999. Two years later, its 54-year run as pro hoops' top minor league was as dead as the two-hand set shot.
