LOS ANGELES, CA - MARCH 10: Head coach Mike Montgomery of the California Golden Bears reacts in the first half while taking on the USC Trojans in the quarterfinals of the 2011 Pacific Life Pac-10 Men's Basketball Tournament at Staples Center on March 10, 2011 in Los Angeles, California.

Scary stuff, but it's good to see that things worked out for the best for Monty. And it doens't look as if the head coach has lost any of his spry sense of humor, so I doubt that he's missing a beat. It seems the cancer was caught early enough that he never really experienced any of the serious symptoms of the disease, and he appears like he's ready to get to work.
Anyway, this is as good a time as ever to give your best wishes to Monty as he prepares for what could be a big season on the hardwood for the Golden Bears. Send letters or emails of appreciation (contact info through the Cal Athletics staff directory) or say hi to him at the open practice this Sunday! Show the love for Monty!
