The coach from Boston College was waiting for the coach from Villanova, to shake his hand and say hi, good to see you, hope there's no hard feelings. Big East coaches had gathered in New York before the 1989-90 basketball season, and if Jim O'Brien of Boston College felt like a new father, who could blame him?

COLLEGE PARK - Tom McMillen could hardly have been a more highly touted recruit. "The best high school player in America," read Sports Illustrated's headline in bold lettering on a 1970 cover depicting the 6-foot-11 Mansfield (Pa.) basketball star. It was a lot to live up to - high school athletes were not normally hyped the way they are today - but McMillen didn't disappoint Maryland or its coach, Lefty Driesell. He averaged 21 points and 10 rebounds in his Terps career. On Sunday, McMillen - a Rhodes Scholar who went on to play in the NBA and serve in the U.S. House of Representatives - will be among the new inductees into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame in Kansas City, Mo. "I'm really proud of him," said Driesell.
