    Drew returns to Valpo as assistant

    VALPARAISO, Ind. (AP) -- Bryce Drew, who hit a 3-pointer as time expired to give Valparaiso a 70-69 upset over Mississippi in the first round of the NCAA tournament seven years ago, is returning to the school as an assistant coach.

    Drew's father, Homer, announced Tuesday that he had hired his son, who led the Crusaders to the Sweet 16 in 1998 before playing six years in the NBA and a year in Europe.

    "Bryce brings to our program tremendous knowledge and understanding of the game as well as invaluable playing experience at the professional and collegiate levels," Homer Drew said.

    After leading Valpo to its first-ever win in the NCAA tournament, Bryce Drew was the 16th pick in the NBA draft by the Houston Rockets. He was traded to the Chicago Bulls in 2000-01, where he started 41 games, averaging 6.3 points, 3.9 assists and 27.2 minutes.

    Following the 2000-01 season, Drew signed with the Charlotte Hornets. He was waived by the New Orleans Hornets in March 2004. He played last season for Reggio Calabria in Italy.

    He is the third member of the Drew family to coach for the Crusaders. Homer Drew has coached the Crusaders for 16 seasons. Scott Drew was an assistant coach for nine years and worked one year as head coach when his father retired. Homer Drew returned when Scott Drew accepted the Baylor job.

    LOL. I also thought this was in fulfillment of the "Major Changes..." prediction.
