And we have a new coach to celebrate, Joe Scott '87, from the Air Force Acadamy:
Scott led Air Force to a 22-7 record in 2003-04, the best record in school history, and led the Falcons to the NCAA tournament for the first time in 42 years, where they lost to North Carolina in the first round. Air Force finished 12-2 in Mountain West Conference (MWC) play, winning its first-ever regular-season conference title. The Falcons, who led the nation in scoring defense (50.9 ppg) and finished in the top 20 nationally in team field-goal percentage and three-pointers per game, had never finished a season with more than 17 wins before this year. Scott was named the MWC and the NABC District 13 Coach of the Year this past month.
This is going to be great.
