Valparaiso coach best pick for Baylor

Sept. 3, 2003

Letter to the editor

I want to congratulate Baylor University for selecting Scott Drew as its new men's basketball coach. I had the pleasure of attending Valparaiso University School of Law between 1995-1998.

During that time the men's basketball team had tremendous success including a trip to the NCAA Sweet 16. The entire university and city of Valparaiso were so proud of the success of coach Homer Drew, assistant coach Scott Drew and player Bryce Drew.

From my perspective, the Drew family is first-class and full of integrity. I know that Scott will be a great coach for Baylor. Even though I live in Indiana I plan to follow Baylor basketball now that a Hoosier is running the program!
