Hewitt article

Whether or not we advance to the Final Four later today, I think I speak for many of us in stating my admiration for the job that Paul Hewitt has done, not only this year, but really ever since he has been at GT. I confess that I was skeptical after he took what I thought was mostly a Cremins-holdover team to the Dance his first year and then never really far after that (until this year, of course). It all goes to show how instant gratification in sports is generally unrealistic, and that the value of strong recruiting balanced with floor-level leadership must my synchronized. Here is a good column I found this morning on the USA Today website. I only hope that Hewitt sticks around long enough to truly rebuild the tradition born under Coach Cremins.
