Nice article on Cuonzo Martin & Gene Keady's relationship


I always like to read about fellow Boilermakers doing well and hope to see UT go as far as possible in the NCAA tournament. This is a nice article on UTSports' website, describing Keady's relationship with Martin. I am the same age as Martin and was fortunate enough to be an undergrad between '91 and '96 when Purdue basketball ruled the roost in the B1G. It was a great time to watch every home game in Mackey when Martin developed into a great player. He struggled offensively as a freshmen, but was a classic case of a talented player that really worked hard and developed over 4 years. It's always surprising to me how quickly the fans and media can give up on players after a struggling freshman year.

No one ever expected Purdue to win the B1G after Big Dog left, much less win the conference for two straight years after the "Big Dog" title. I was also struck that Keady called Martin the best leader he had in 50 years of coaching. Think about that for a minute. That's impressive with all the players that came through Keady's programs.
