COACH AND PROGRAM

After a 1-12 start -- including 11 straight losses -- in his interim season as coach at Fairleigh Dickinson, Greg Vetrone -- known in the college basketball circuit by his nickname "Shoes" -- appeared to be headed to the unemployment line.

But Vetrone, a former assistant under Billy Banyo at UNLV who was getting his first crack as a head coach at the Division I level, never made it that far. A funny thing happened when the calendar rolled into January, and the Knights hit the meat of their NEC schedule.
