Knights in the Pros

Back in the mid-'60s, in the throes of Vietnam and racial turmoil, it was necessary on occasion to find a respite from the country's edgy mood. One place I'd go was a lovably outdated little gym on the campus of Catholic University. The school's basketball team wasn't a power, but it was a delight to watch. Tom Young was a coach who drove his players -- not as a taskmaster but, literally, as a driver. The school didn't have a team bus, so for most road games he took as many players as would fit in his car; a friend followed in a van with the rest.

On Aug.1, Joakim Noah will fly to the island of St. Barts for three weeks of rest and relaxation with his father, former tennis star Yannick Noah.
There, Noah said he will also "go running on the beach and work out" with his father, who is now a reggae singer.
Yes, life is good for the former Poly Prep standout. That is especially true after last week, when Noah, a 6-10 center, performed better than any other player in the annual ABCD basketball camp at Fairleigh Dickinson University.
