Florida's Vernon Macklin will take the court tonight against Butler for the right to play in the Final Four.â†µ
But this isn't his first Final Four trip. His first trip came in 2007, when he played on the Georgetown Hoyas Final Four team (albeit sparingly).
However, when he now reflects on his time at Georgetown, he doesn't exactly have the fondest of memories, according to a story in the Washington Post:â†µ
To be honest, I was at Georgetown but I only liked a selected few players, and me and the coaching staff didn’t get along as I thought we would," Macklin said Friday. "I’m not gonna say [Coach John Thompson III] didn’t care at Georgetown, it was just the position I was in. It was Jeff Green, Roy Hibbert, so I wasn’t in a position to really be cared about."â†µ
I guess that would be reason enough to transfer schools, as Macklin did when he transferred from Georgetown to Florida after his sophomore season.â†µ
