Virginia Commonwealth's Coach Shaka Smart- Local Roots

Being a Wisconsin Badger fan I naturally began rooting for Butler to win the NCAA Basketball Championship since they beat Wisconsin. But I just recently found out that VCU coach Shaka Smart was born in Madison and graduated from Oregon (WI) High School.
In high school, he was a three-year starter for Oregon and a second-team All-Badger Conference pick as a senior. He rewrote Oregon's record books for assists, finishing as its all-time leader for a career (458), season (201) and single game (20).1
Maybe I will root for VCU.
