Two-Minute Drill with Kevin Hammack

  • Updated

"I played one year of semi-pro ball in Halifax, Novia Scotia. The team was called the Halifax Rainmen. It was great fun, no books, all basketball. So it was a very enjoyable time. The league is called the Premier Basketball League. We played people like the St. John Millrats and the Montreal Sasquatch. It was decent money. I was able to keep myself fed and save a little money. But then I got old and my knees didn't agree with me anymore. It was time to move on to coaching."

"Yes, basketball is my passion. If I can't play it, I definitely want to help other guys be the best players they can be. I went back to my high school and coached there for a year. Then I helped my high school coach when he moved to a junior college. Then I moved on to Mount Olive for a year."

"It's great for me. I was happy to come back to my alma mater, and to work with such a great staff. I've learned a lot of things about basketball and how to help our young guys develop their games."

"It's busy, busy, busy. Always something to do, film to clip, scouting reports to prepare. And then I'm in graduate school, so there's class and school work to take care of. I have class on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday this semester."

"Just the interaction with the guys, seeing them grow and mature, not only on the court but as human beings. I went to The Citadel, so I try to help them with that. I can let them know, any questions you have, anything you need, just come to me. I definitely think I can help them with those situations."
