College basketball coaches become teammates in the fight against coronavirus

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Inspired by a popular social-media blitz from their friends in New York, head basketball coaches at 23 Division I schools across New England are banding together to fight the spread of the coronavirus.

He was made aware of the push in New York by Andy Borman and Dan Klores, two associates of the RENS, an AAU program in New York.
