BALTIMORE - In today's Baltimore Sun, Don Markus profiles Loyola University Maryland head men's basketball coach G.G. Smith and the Greyhounds' upcoming game against Smith's mentor and father, Tubby.
The Greyhounds will open the season on Friday night against Texas Tech University where the elder Smith, who won an NCAA Championship as head coach of the 1998 University of Kentucky team, is in his second season as head coach. The Red Raiders' staff also includes G.G. Smith's younger brother, Saul.
Later this year, G.G. Smith will coach against another familiar face when former Greyhounds head coach Jimmy Patsos, whom Smith served as an assistant coach to for six seasons, brings his Siena College team to Reitz Arena on Nov. 29.
