Ol' Roy, Pitino, Calipari -- oh my

NEW YORK -- The scene here at the "green room" at Madison Square Garden is quite star-studded if you're a college basketball fan.

Besides the dozen or so players, it's an absolute Who's Who of college coaches. UNC's Roy Williams (at Tyler Hansbrough's table), Louisville's Rick Pitino (with Terrence Williams) and Memphis's John Calipari (with Tyreke Evans) are all within 10 yards of each other.

Davidson coach Bob McKillop just arrived as well -- he had to cut it fairly close due to his travel schedule but did make it. He is seated at Stephen Curry's table, as are Curry's parents (Dell and Sonya) and his younger sister Sydel.

Curry's younger brother Seth is on his way to New Zealand as a member of the U.S. 19-and-under national team and couldn't be here.
