John Thompson III’s wife Monica Thompson

This one got me a little choked up. I wasn’t aware of the back story between John and Monica when GTown won the East region back in 2007. Turns out Monica had battled breast cancer ever since John Thompson III took over the program his father created. For the entire first year Monica went through chemo John was at every treatment, despite the crazy schedule a college coach lives. Just one year after finishing chemo…

Marquette Head Coach Buzz Williams’ Wife Corey (Norman) Williams

Buzz Williams’ wife Corey (Norman) Williams is a bit of an athlete herself. And when we say a bit, we mean a lot. Growing up in Amarillo, TX, Corey attended Randall High School and ran track and field and cross country. Standing only 5’3″, you might think that she was limited to running sports – but you’d be wrong. Corey was also a star guard, good enough to lead Randall to the 1992 Texas state…

Wisconsin’s Head Coach Bo Ryan’s wife Kelly Ryan

Bo Ryan has been a head coach in the University of Wisconsin system for a very long time. He started at University of Wisconsin-Platteville in 1984, moved to Milwaukee for a few years and then was hired at the main campus in Madison in 2001. Sensing a loyal man, you won’t be shocked to know that he and his wife Kelly have been married for over 35 years. Bo and Kelly have been married since…

VCU’s Head Coach Shaka Smart’s wife Maya Payne Smart

Following an unlikely trip to the Final Four in 2011, VCU is yet again a popular pick to make a sleeper run deep into the 2012 NCAA Tournament led by young head coach, Shaka Smart. The 34 year old Smart took the reins as a head coach for the first time in 2009 after bouncing between multiple programs as an assistant coach. What’s truly impressive about this, is that the young coach never spent more…

Baylor’s Head Coach Scott Drew’s wife Kelly Drew

Since getting hired as the basketball coach at Baylor in 2003, Scott Drew has worked very hard to restore the image of the school and program. Drew came on following the resignation of then coach Dave Bliss in the shadow of the tragic scandal involving member of the team Colton Dodson being found guilty of murdering teammate Patrick Dennehey (and admittedly more concerning allegations amongst players behavior on the team). Drew has spent the bulk…

Thad Matta’s wife Barbara Matta

Thad Matta is a superstitious man. During every game, he chews the same piece of gum the entire time. One game he accidently spit the gum on the floor, picked it back up and went right on chewing. Well, it appears this has worn off on his wife, Barbara. She is known to always get popcorn and a diet Coke for every game she attends. And so they don’t feel left out, Barbara eats Lucky…

Vanderbilt’s Head Coach Kevin Stallings wife Lisa Stallings

Kevin Stallings, 51 years old, has accomplished many things, including: coaching college basketball, two Sweet 16 appearances, married with a family… aaaaaaaand has never drank a beer Yeah, read that again. Never. Didn’t steal a Bud diesel from his dad’s stash or celebrate his coming of age in style. More power to him, and more beer for us. This is just one example that Stallings is serious business. He once drove to Vanderbilt/UNC baseball and…
