He's no Sal, that is for sure

Sal Mentesana was a good guy. Friendly, quotable and one snappy dresser. But while Sal's affiliation was a big plus for a tailor, it didn't do much for his basketball teams. Even with scholarship kids towards he end of his run, Sal's teams stunk.

Only Army and Navy coaches have lower career winning percentages in the league than Mentesana, whose teams went 43-125 overall, and 16-58 in league play during his six seasons at Lehigh.

On the other hand, Ralph Willard is anything but a clothes horse, yet his teams have made three trips to the NCAA Tournament (with a fourth a very real possibility) in his four-plus seasons in Worcester.

Just goes to show clothes don't make the coach.
