One of the first projects Joe Harris consumed himself with upon arriving at the University of Virginia four years ago, was to delve into the Cavaliers’ basketball history.
Having grown up on the West Coast, Harris knew the legend of Ralph Sampson, but little else about Wahoo basketball. He subsequently learned about Bryant Stith, John Crotty, Barry Parkhill, Wally Walker, Jeff Lamp and all the rest. Harris’ research was more than just names and stories. It was also about the people behind the scenes.
