Final Four Coach’s Private Agony

March 25, 2012 by staff 

Final Four Coach’s Private Agony, The Werner brand ladder was purple and yellow and stood about 8½ feet tall. A worker at TD North Garden had hauled it out, placed it under the hoop on the west side of the arena and a parade of Ohio State Buckeyes scampered up it to clip part of an NCAA tournament East Regional net.

Thad Matta’s ascent to cut down the nets was not easy, but the coach wasn’t about to miss out on the celebration.

There were just a couple of strands remaining, and now Thad Matta, the Buckeyes’ coach, stood in front of the ladder, preparing to climb for the ceremonial final snips after Ohio State’s 77-70 victory over Syracuse propelled the program to the Final Four.
