Most fun The Bilastrator ever had

Atlantic 10 (1997-2001)

The Bilastrator's main beat in the late 1990s was the A-10, and it was an absolute blast. Whether it was Skip Prosser's Xavier teams at the Cincinnati Gardens with Lenny Brown and Gary Lumpkin, John Chaney's Temple teams with Mark Karcher, Lamont Barnes, Quincy Wadley and Lynn Greer, Al Skinner's Rhode Island teams with Tyson Wheeler and Cuttino Mobley or George Washington with Shawnta Rogers, it was a fabulous league of fun. Nobody took themselves too seriously, and the quality of coaching and playing was fantastic. Driving in a snowstorm from Olean, New York, to the airport in Buffalo is still the second-most-harrowing experience of The Bilastrator's life, just after listening to Digger Phelps recount his best season at Fordham.

Any other team wins the World Series, good for them. They're drinking champagne, they get a ring. But if we win, on our budget, with this team... we'll have changed the game. And that's what I want. I want it to mean something. - Moneyball

"Digger's best season at Fordham" makes it sound as if he had more than one season at Fordham.

Maybe Digger meant to say it was his "best" season.

It WAS his best season. It was his first season as a head coach and he never topped it it in his 20 years at Our Lady of the Lake. He made it to the Elite 8 in 1979, but with an overall record of 24-6. His record at Fordham was 26-3 and the Sweet 16, which he equaled in 1974.

He went to the Final Four in '78.
