I tried a game the other night that didn't quite work in the format I presented it, but I thought you college basketball junkies would really like it. So...I'm trying again.

Here's the game: For those of you who know the Six Degrees of Kevin Bacon game, then you'll pick up on this right away. Basically, you need to find a way to connect BYU to Winthrop through coaching carousel moves. Here's a simple form, so there's no confusion:

Puzzle:

Start UW-Milwaukee

1 Tennessee

2 Marquette

Finish Arizona

 

Answer:

1 Bruce Pearl was head coach at UW-Milwaukee & Tennessee

2 Kevin O'Neill coached at Tennessee and Marquette

Finish Kevin O'Neill coached at Marquette and Arizona

Now it's your turn. Name all of the connections in a post. Or, find a shorter path than I have laid out. Hope you find it fun and challenging...

Puzzle:

Start BYU

1 Fresno State

2 UNLV

3 Kansas State

4 Florida

5 Providence

6 Louisville

7 Memphis

8 UTEP

9 Kentucky

10 Texas A&M

11 Wichita State

Finish Winthrop
