Default Re: Frank McGuire facts

A few more facts about the McGuire-St. Johns connection:

Frank was a two-sport star while a student at St. Johns excelling in both baseball & B-ball.

His B-ball coach at St. Johns? Buck Freeman who would later become Frank's lifelong mentor, assistant and friend.

The winningest coach in St. Johns storied B-ball history? Percentage-wise it was Buck, not Frank or Louie Carnesecca. Freeman's teams won over 85% of their games over the nine-season span he coached them after being the team's star player as a student. Almost a decade later, Frank would coax his one-time coach out of retirement to help him resuscitate St. Johns' basketball fortunes. Indeed, the two friends were both NYC B-ball legends before they ever came south.
