How many points for a three-pointer?
Maybe my final exams are too hard, after all. At the University of Georgia, former assistant coach Jim Harrick Jr. (son of head coach Jim Harrick Sr.) taught a course in 2001 on Coaching Principles and Strategies of Basketball. There was only one exam, including questions along the lines of "How many halves are in a college basketball game?" and "In your opinion, who is the best Division I assistant coach in the country?" (Correct answer: C, Jim Harrick Jr.)
The test in its entirety is here. Everyone in the class got an A. Both coaches recently lost their jobs following an NCAA investigation of multiple rule violations.
