DALLAS (AP) - Now that he's back in the college game, Larry Brown is looking for the next Danny Manning. Meantime, he's not very excited about coaching against the real thing.
When Manning and Tulsa (8-6) visit SMU (10-5) on Sunday night, it will be just the second time the most outstanding player from an NCAA championship team opposes his coach on the sideline.
Thinking back to the moment when Kansas won that title in 1988, Brown can hardly bear the notion of trying to beat maybe his favorite player in a 40-year career.
The 72-year-old Brown is a Naismith Hall of Famer who is the only coach to win NBA and NCAA titles. Both coaches are in their first seasons at these schools and are trying to build championship-contending programs.
