Super Rat

To those that are familiar with basketball lore "Super Rat" was one of Jim Valvano's nicknames. "Jimmy V" was such an amazing man!!! He was ahead of his time in his recruiting style, rebuilt basketball programs, and won the 1983 NCAA Championship.  His greatest battle; cancer produced his greatest legacy; The Jimmy V Foundation for Cancer Research. 

Jim Valvano changed the world we live in! 

(let this page serve as a memory to him - please share anything in the guestbook section)
