Blair will battle ‘old pal’ tonight
Blair, a former assistant coach under Leon Barmore at Louisiana Tech University, said it’ll be fun coaching against his best friend.
“But it’s still about George Washington and Texas A&M,” he said. “The girls on the court are going to decide it _ not us coaches.
“He won’t be my best friend tomorrow night. He’ll just be an opponent, and a very well-respected opponent. I like their basketball team. The loser’s going to head to the golf course, the winner’s going to head to Dallas.”
As head coaches, they’ve played three times, with McKeown’s teams winning twice.
