Each week in this space, Press Break will run a bracket-style tournament with user voting determining who advances and ultimately "wins."
Catholic Coach Steve Howes has entered the pantheon of rags-to-riches stories, joining Jimmy Valvano, the 1983 N.C. State Wolfpack and Rollie Massimino and the 1985 Villanova Wildats and Cinderella herself (Royal Ball, time unknown). Not even Jim Larranaga, author of one of college basketball's greatest upset runs, has made it as far as Howes, who handily defeated American's Jeff Jones to reach the final of this week's event. Joining him there is a man who knows something about the mercurial nature of tournament play, Georgetown Coach John Thompson III.
Once again, the question is "Who is the area's best coach?" Vote today. We'll crown a champion by Monday.
