Former assistant coach remembers Lehman College's basketball team

Former assistant coach of Lehman College's basketball team had only kind words to say about the Lightning at the Eastern Invitational Basketball Camp at Fordham University.

John Sanchez left Lehman last season to take a similar job at City College. Sanchez says he left because City College had offered him a promotion with more money and more responsibility. He had spent three seasons with the Lightning.

Even though he is no longer coaching the team, Sanchez kept a watchful eye on Lehman last year as they won the CUNY conference title for the first time in 17 years.
