Larry Brown's influence on Final Four

Larry Brown sure attracted a lot of attention at the Alamodome on Friday. But there was good reason. Brown's influence has been huge on each of the four programs at the Final Four:
-- He played and was an assistant at North Carolina.
-- He was coach at UCLA from 1979-81.
-- He was coach at Kansas from 1983-88 and took the Jayhawks to the NCAA title in 1988.
-- Memphis coach John Calipari was a Brown assistant at Kansas and with the Philadelphia 76ers. David Scott
