NCAA board adds that Duke player who threw the ball to Laettner

One of the central figures in the worst play in college basketball history is now a member on the NCAA’s board of governors.

Grant Hill, who should’ve had a man in front of him on the final inbounds play of the 1992 East Regional final, is one of five new appointees to the board. Now a co-owner of the Atlanta Hawks after years of selling Sprite, Hill joins the NCAA’s uphill battle to regain the trust of its fans as the FBI uncovers piles and piles of dirt from the shadows.

Along with Hill, the four other newbies on the board are: Kenneth Chenault, a former chairman and CEO of American Express; Mary Sue Coleman, president of the Association of American Universities; Vivek Murthy, a former U.S. surgeon general; and Denis McDonough, former chief of staff to Barack Obama.

Let’s celebrate Hill’s new job by rewatching the greatest moment in Duke’s NCAA Tournament history:

      Wow, and a 15-seed over a 2-seed to boot! But that Count K sure can coach basketball, can’t he? 😀

      I guess he will recuse himself if Duke should ever be accused of anything.

      Why? There was no investigation into any of dUKe’s other violations.

    As bad as a guy Pitino is, he is/was a great bench coach. I don’t recall him ever saying if he he would have done it differently. Oh well..

    Duke personally asked for a big pile of Dukey to be put on the board just so everyone knows they’re untouchable. Now they can look at a kid and say here’s some money for your family. Oh and don’t worry about getting caught because we own the NCAA.

    It is ironic though that right as this is happening Duke jumps to the number one recruiting spot. Foreshadowing anyone?
