WNY watches as Newfane native coaches in NCAA Men's Final


Niagara Gazette — “I think John knows we’re kind of his good luck charm,” Ennis said.

“It’s what I love about what I do,” John Beilein said. “Because of a game, maybe it’s free tickets sometimes, but we can bring people together, family together that doesn’t see each other except at a family reunion, or high school reunion.

“I love that we won because they paid a lot of money to come. Especially from Buffalo to come down to Atlanta, especially in this nice weather now, for four days.”

“There are an awful lot of people in Western New York that have been a big part of our lives and our family’s life,” Beilein said last week in an appearance on Murphy’s WGR radio show.

“I hope they’re rooting for us.”
