December 1st began Jimmy V Week, named for famed NC State basketball coach Jim Valvano, who led the Wolfpack to NCAA Tournament victory in 1983, and who died of bone cancer ten years later. A new biography has come out about Valvano this year called The Inspiration of Jimmy V: One Coach, 11 Minutes, and an Uncommon Look at the Game of Life. I haven't read it yet, but I want to. The book was written by Justin Spizman and Robyn Freedman Spizman, both Atlanta residents. These two You Tube links are my favorite clips of this coach (here and here). They are worth watching. And, Go Wolfpack!
