Sidney Lowe

Sidney Lowe may be the perfect coach for today's college game. He showed smarts and guts as a player, getting the most out of the talent around him. And he is one of the few college coaches who has the entire NBA on speed dial, a considerable asset when recruiting top talent.

Although they were picked last in the ACC this year, the Wolfpack showed flashes of great play with wins over Carolina and Virginia Tech during the regular season. Their ACC tourney was even better. I will always remember their remarkable guts and stamina as a reflection of their coach.

You don't have to be around Sidney Lowe long to realize he is long on charm. He has a winning combination of boiling intensity and an easy smile, much like a former NC State coach.
