Texas A&M's Buzz Williams reunites with assistant coach Steve Roccaforte

In 1991, 25-year-old Steve Roccaforte, then a green assistant coach for Centenary, made his way to Stephen F. Austin to scout a 16-team junior college basketball tournament. At that showcase, Roccaforte met a young, spunky manager for the Navarro basketball team — Buzz Williams— and the pair began a friendship that started another chapter Tuesday with A&M men’s head coach Williams hiring Roccaforte as his associate head coach.

Buzz Williams expects plenty of mistakes but is glad Texas A&M is back on court

COLLEGE STATION — Every couple of years, the Harlem Globetrotters roll into Reed Arena and entertain the community on Texas A&M’s court.
