Leonard Hamilton, who rebuilt the University of Miami basketball program, was hired as the coach at Florida State on Tuesday. The 53-year-old Hamilton replaces Steve Robinson, who was fired last week after the Seminoles completed a fourth consecutive losing season. Florida State went 18-14 and made the NCAA tournament during Robinson's first season in 1997-98, but lost at least 17 games in each of the last four seasons.

A coach can make himself sick, literally, trying to negotiate the ups and downs, the trials and tribulations of the Washington Wizards. The enormity of it has overwhelmed more than a few good men. This is where having built two programs from nothing should serve Leonard Hamilton well in what will probably be his most difficult start from scratch.

Leonard Hamilton, lured from Oklahoma State by what he described as unlimited potential at the University of Miami, became the Hurricanes' new basketball coach Monday. Hamilton, 41, inherits a Miami program that averaged just 2,000 fans for home games and has yet to earn an NCAA tournament berth since the school resumed basketball in 1985 after a 15-year interruption. Hamilton had a 56-63 record in four years with the Cowboys.

And this season, Marshall has learned that less has allowed him to do more. Less weight that is. In previous seasons, Marshall found advantages to being one of the tallest guards in the Atlantic Coast Conference, but disadvantages to being the heaviest.
