Clarence “Big House” Gaines has been gone for nearly a decade now, but his coaching legacy continues to live on. One of Gaines former players is getting an opportunity the legend himself never got to achieve.

// Delaware shocked the college basketball world on Monday by upsetting William and Mary 75-74 in the CAA Tournament. The Hens are coached by Monte Ross, who played for Gaines at Winston-Salem State from 1988-1992.

// The win means Delaware will make its first NCAA Tournament appearance since 1999. Ross took over the program in 2006, slowly molding the program into a winner. The team has improved every year since the 2010 season, going from 7-24 to 25-9.
