UF assistant enjoying the moment


Lewis Preston was sitting on a chair at the media table soaking it all in. “My first one,” he said. “I’ve been to Sweet 16s before, but this is my first Final Four.”

Preston has been to Final Fours before as an assistant coach sitting in the stands, but this is his first one as a participant. The Florida assistant coach was digging the atmosphere.

“It has been great already,” he said Friday. “I bumped into my old boss (Mike Brey) and he told me just to enjoy it.”

Brey, the Notre Dame coach, is one of the hundreds of head coaches and assistants who are at the Final Four.
