Listen to Mark Macon for a few minutes and it’s clear he has been associated with John Chaney.
Macon, Temple’s all-time scoring leader with 2,609 points, brought his Binghamton University basketball team to Drexel on Sunday for a 40-point thrashing by the Dragons.
In many cases, coaches of teams that have been trounced cannot wait to flee the postgame interviews. Not Macon. Thankfully, he was very talkative. And the more he talked, the more I thought I was channeling Chaney.
Discussing his effort to find some productive combinations with his Bearcats (1-4) trailing by more than 30 points, Macon said, “I’ve got to put something out there. I’ve got to put bread, peanut butter, jelly, something in the game.”
