    McDermott's Assistant - Hampton's Old Coach

    Sorry for the Hampton flashback fanatics, but I thought this was a very interesting tidbit.....

    Source:
    Men's Basketball Takes on Iowa State on Sunday - GoCreighton.com

    Clone War
    Sunday will see new Creighton head coach Greg McDermott square off against the Iowa State program he coached the past four seasons.
    In the over 100-year history of the Iowa State men's basketball program, no Iowa State team has ever faced a team with a former head coach as its head coach, as it will on Sunday.
    That痴 not the only coaching connection between Iowa State and Creighton.
    Creighton Director of Basketball Operations Erik Crawford and Video Coordinator Nathan Wieseler were both on McDermott痴 staff at Iowa State.
    Bluejay assistant coach Steve Merfeld led 15th-seeded Hampton to a memorable upset of second-seeded Iowa State in the 2001 NCAA Tournament. At the time, the Pirates were just the fourth 15th-seed to ever win an NCAA Tournament game. The celebration of Merfeld racing across the court and being hoisted by Hampton forward David Johnson remains an iconic image of the NCAA Tournament that is replayed annually in highlight montages to this day.

    All the more reason to leave the starters in longer, once the rout is on.

    Figures that Chewie would hire that bum for his staff. One worked inside the ISU basketball program to tear it down, one worked from the outside trying to beat it down.

    I forgot how close that layup was to going in. Watching that video is like being reminded of the time you walked in on your parents doing it. It's a terrible image burned into your head.
