The Fayetteville Observer today profiles Fayetteville State University head men’s basketball coach Alphonza Kee, who recently graduated several members of his team and a graduation rate exceeding 80 percent – well beyond the national average.
“If you don’t get it done in the classroom, you don’t play,” (former Bronco player and current FSU Assistant Coach Jarmel) Baxter said. “He does a lot of things to help us, like study hall four days a week. He demands that our players sit in the first two rows of the classroom.”
“He periodically checks classes to make sure we are attending. If people miss classes, there is a price to pay – everybody runs. You don’t want to be the guy who causes everybody to do extra running.”
