College basketball has lacked diversity in coaching and Coach Ham has had a historic tenure over the last 16 years. The Shadow League took some time to discuss the moments that have lead him to this moment in the NCAA tournament.
Hamilton has faced some tough critics over the years, but his resume says it all...and he knows it.
