    Also, I am a keen student of college basketball!"
    I hope that doesn't include taking off her sweater to swing around at the games.
    ...he went up late, and I was already up there.

    I hope she realizes the enormous impact of basketball on Xavier and doesn't pull a Nancy Zimpher.

    I don't think the basketball program under Huggins was helping the university. He won games, but he also gave the university a bad reputation because of how he ran the program, and his lifestyle.

    I don't disagree, but I also think she was dead-set on the priority for growth and a bump in prestige being 99% academic-based.

    At the end of the day, I understand learning is high on any President's list, but burning the cash cow (at the time at UC) isn't very smart either. While she was successful at removing Huggins, she was never going to last there with such a low priority for athletics.
