Loyola's Patsos Another "Ring Bearer"

OK, so your blogger missed at least one "ring bearer" among those with MAAC connections.

That would be current Loyola head coach Jimmy Patsos, who owns an NCAA national championship ring, courtesy of being an assistant at Maryland for that program's run to the title in 2002.

That reminder comes courtesy of astute MAAC follower Jerry Sherry, a longtime fan primarily of the Siena basketball program.

And, your blogger should have known better to to have overlooked Patsos. As a media member, I covered the first-round game Siena played against Maryland that season. Two years later, Patsos was in the MAAC, beginning his tenure that turned around Loyola's program.
