Interview with Floyd:
"What was the highlight of your athletic career at Holy Cross? 'Being drafted in the fifth round by the Milwaukee Bucks was probably the highlight. But before that, I made a big splash as a freshman – to say the least. I hit a big shot against Providence. Providence versus Holy Cross was the NBC game of the week. I was playing against guys who I had competed with in high school, guys who used to eat me up. I was so focused. The final play was designed for our sharpshooter, Ron Perry. Everybody knew who would take the last shot; they double-teamed him and the ball came back to me. I looked up and shot it like I was in the final scene of a Walt Disney movie. I hit the shot and the crowd rushed the floor and picked me up.'"
I remember that shot, and also a big block against BC the next year (80-81) when HC beat a pretty good BC team.

Ernie's daughter played good basketball at Assumption. What was the issue with her not going to HC? I recall it had to do with Admissions and HC not communicating clearly, which turned something usually simple and clear cut into something complicated.
