Excerpt: Charles Grice "Lefty" Driesell (born December 25, 1931) is a retired college basketball coach. Driesell grew up in Norfolk, Virginia, where he attended Granby High School. The famous left-hander attended Duke University from 1950 to 1954, playing basketball under coach Harold Bradley. He began his coaching career as a junior varsity coach at Granby High School in Norfolk in 1954, and then took over as varsity coach the next year. In 1957 he took a head coaching job at Newport News High School, where his teams built a 57-game winning streak. Driesell's first college head-coaching job was with Davidson College from 1960 to 1969. During his tenure there, he won the Southern Conference championship three times. In 1969, he was hired by the University of Maryland. It was during his introductory press conference that he made the bold statement that he wanted to make Maryland the "UCLA of the East." UCLA was the dominant college basketball program at the time. Driesell coached the University of Maryland Terrapins from 1969 to 1986. During his tenure, the basketball team had such star players as Tom McMillen, Len Elmore, John Lucas, Albert King, Buck Williams, and Len Bias. In 1974 he signed high school star Moses Malone, but lost him to professional basketball, the Utah Stars, just before classes began. Moses was one of the first basketball players to jump directly from high school into the professional leagues. Coach Driesell is also credited with starting the nationwide tradition of Midnight Madness in 1971, which began with the idea of getting the school excited for the team and the upcoming basketball season, and resulted in an event that involved having the team being introduced and practicing at midnight of the first day the team is allowed to.
