With college basketball season winding down, here’s an interesting story to follow:

Brett Reed, once the basketball coach at Canterbury, now has his current team -- Lehigh -- in contention for an NCAA Tournament berth.

The Mountain Hawks currently lead the Patriot League.

At 17-9 overall, they’ll likely need to claim the conference title to reach the tournament. Lehigh’s main competition within the conference is Navy and Bucknell.

Reed has another strong tie to this area.

A native of Michigan, he attended Eckerd Colllege, where he played point guard and helped lead his team to a conference championship and NCAA Tournament appearance.

Reed is in his third season as Lehigh coach.

At last check, he was one of only 29 Division I men’s basketball head coaches under the age of 40.
