President Dunlap, Coach Young do NPR interviews; Inglis congratulates Terriers

SPARTANBURG, S.C. - Wofford is garnering a lot of national attention with its first appearance in the NCAA Basketball Tournament.  President Benjamin B. Dunlap was interviewed Wednesday (March 17) on “The Colin McEnroe Show” on Connecticut Public Broadcasting Network on WNPR (www.wnpr.org) about the impact the berth is having on the campus, beyond athletics.

Joining the program were Bill Curry, comedian Julia Pistell and NPR National Desk reporter Mike Pesca.

After the program, McEnroe wrote on his blog:

“Curry and Julia Pistell filled out their brackets, with advice from all kinds of people and a spirit-lifting pep talk from the president of Wofford College. (Our whole staff went wild for this guy.)”

On Saturday, March 13, head basketball Coach Mike Young was interviewed on NPR’s “Only a Game” program.

Earlier this week, U.S. Rep. Bob Inglis, R-S.C., congratulated the Terriers on their SoCon championship and trip to the NCAA Tournament:

Follow the Terriers as they play Wisconsin in the first round of the NCAA Tournament this Friday at 2:50 p.m. In Upstate South Carolina and Western North Carolina, the game will air on WYCW 62 (Charter Cable channel 9). Access all the NCAA tournament games live by going to www.marchmadness.com.
