Q & A: I have an extremely talented 12 year old (6th grader) who plays in AAU and “cruises” through the league.

D’Frantz Smart went back to school this summer, but the most important lesson she learned may have come during the first few weeks of last season.

It’s not every day that you have the opportunity to meet a true basketball coaching legend. I had that very privilege recently when I shared a meal and time with the tremendous basketball coach and human being, Don Meyer.

More impressive than his coaching accomplishments has been the storied journey he’s gone through in battling cancer and a horrific car accident.
