Letter to The Editor: NIU needs better MAC players


Letter to The Editor

By Don Lass

Believe it or not, I graduated in 1968, with a BS in marketing. I am also a basketball fan despite being ancient – I’m 71 years old. I simply have not figured out why NIU cannot find a basketball coach who can recruit players that are competitive in the MAC.

Coaches come and go and yet no one in the past 25 years has been able to find players who can be something more than cannon fodder for the rest of the league.

Our latest coach has done nothing to improve upon the futility of the past. It’s time for him to move on and we should try again. I don’t expect to win the national championship but it would be nice to have a team finish 22-8 for a change.
