“It wasn't very fun,” Hoffman said. “It was great to see people. The very first day we got here on Saturday, I got to see one of the players I coached at Piedmont — the very first team I ever coached 9,000,000 years ago so I got to see a lot of people.
“But it would've been a lot more fun to be able to have competed at a little higher level than we did tonight. … This is a special place, it's a special state and I've been blessed to be part of a lot of fun things that have happened for basketball in this state.”
