Thomas, FIU Starting Over Together

Miami, FL (AP) - FIU hired Isiah Thomas to reinvent its basketball
program. In turn, Thomas knows he can likely reinvent himself.
If ever a team needed revitalizing, it's FIU, with nine straight
losing seasons and a record over that span that doesn't even rank
among the top 300 Division I programs.
So here to lead this colossal rebuilding challenge comes a
Basketball Hall of Fame player, an icon in the game, whose last
stop with the New York Knicks began with spectacular fanfare and
ended amid a spectacular flameout.
It starts Monday at No. 6 North Carolina, and even Thomas isn't
shy about saying this could be a lengthy project.
