It's interesting connecting the dots:

Morgan Bailey is the niece of Thurl Bailey who played on Jim Valvano's 1983 North Carolina State team that upset Dave Rose's Phi Slamma Jamma Houston team to win the national championship.

BYU beat North Carolina State in the opening round of this year's tournament.

Good luck to Morgan and the Lady BYU Cougars who will have to pull off an even bigger upset to advance to the Elite Eight!


It would be nice to get a little more information about her parents. Is this the daughter of Thurl's brother? Who is he? Does he live in Utah? Are there siblings?
