Matt Hahn and Dad Coaching in Buffalo Subregion Today

Today's Washington Post has a story about Matt Hahn (1996-2000) and his dad, former Terps assistant Billy Hahn, both coaching in the Buffalo subregion of the NCAA Tournament today: Matt is an assistant at Vermont, and Billy is an assistant at West Virginia.
Both West Virginia and Vermont reached the NCAA tournament. They could have gone to any of eight destinations, but they were both sent to Buffalo. They could have been timed to play back-to-back, which would have been taxing for [Billy's wife] Kathi, who becomes fatigued. Instead, the second-seeded Mountaineers play No. 15 Morgan State at 12:15 p.m. on Friday, while the 16th-seeded Catamounts face No. 1 seed Syracuse at 9:40 p.m.

Kathi and Ashley can both go to the same site, wear blue and gold at noon and green and gold in the evening. The Hahns can come together in the same place, united by basketball and family and second chances.
