It was Friday night, game night. About the last place Rich Prospero wanted to be was in a gymnasium. Any gymnasium really, but especially the one at Santa Ana Valley High School, where he would actually have to coach a basketball team. That day, his father had been buried.

Chapman offered Prospero, only 25, an assistant coaching position for more money. Prospero, who never wanted to leave the program in the first place, accepted.
