Greenberg happy to see USF basketball in NCAAs
NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- As much as anyone, Seth Greenberg can understand the challenge of trying to get USF into the NCAA Tournament, but the former Bulls coach said Saturday that he's glad to see the Bulls not only in the tournament, but winning two games as they have.
"I had a great experience at South Florida. People were really good to me," Greenberg said. "I'm really happy they have invested in the facilities and invested in the program. Obviously the Big East has been a great vehicle. It's a process of building a program. ... I know Stan very well and I'm happy for him. I can appreciate the journey."
Greenberg, whose Virginia Tech team finished 16-17 to miss the NCAAs for a fifth year in a row, is working as a guest analyst for ESPN this weekend during the NCAA Tournament. He went 108-100 in seven seasons with the Bulls, including two trips to the Postseason NIT, and said he can see why things have come together for USF in the last month.
"They're a senior-oriented team with a terrific young point guard," he said. "They obviously check you each and every possession. They finish possessions. It looks like Victor Rudd is playing at a really high level right now with a lot of confidence. In Anthony Collins, you have a great point guard that creates possibilities. They've won a lot of close games and that's a testament to Coach Heath. Stan's done a great job of getting those guys to buy in to how they need to play to win."
