A Former ACC Player’s Coaching Star Is Rising Fast

Remember Maryland’s Sarunas Jasikevicius (aka Jesse’s Cabbages)?

He was a tough, gritty guard from Lithuania.

Well he’s no longer playing - he’s 43 and only Vince Carter plays that long - but he has gone into coaching and has quickly made a name for himself.

He’s done so well that NBA teams have their eye on him and in particular the Memphis Grizzlies are checking him out.
