Nice USA Today article on Maurice Joseph


This is cool -- USA Today has a profile of Coach Mojo, talking about hitting the ground running after being named interim head coach a day before practice started. In this case, it was literally, he immediately went to East Lansing, Michigan to meet with his mentor and former coach, Tom Izzo at Michigan State.

Mojo played for Izzo (see above) before transferring to Vermont, and he got a lot of advice from him before the season.

The good guys are currently 13-12 and 5-7 in conference, though that was almost 6-6 with a near-win over VCU. Nice to see this article, and nice to be in the news lately for something other than that painful game.
