Thanking Mike Hopkins

While it was difficult to see him go, SU men’s basketball, and its fans, have to thank Mike Hopkins for a quarter-century of contributions to the Orange program. First as a player, and then as an assistant coach, rising to the level of associate head coach, Hopkins became as much of the SU family as anyone not named Boeheim, proving himself an ace recruiter for teams that reached four different Final Fours and, of course, brought home a national championship in 2003. Now, at Washington, Hopkins will finally get his chance as a head coach.
