The Full-Court Parent Trap

Author:

DURING LAST WEEK'S conference tournaments two very funny celebrity parents got their share of airtime. Bill Murray appeared at the Big East tournament to cheer on Xavier, where his son Luke is an assistant coach, and Julia Louis-Dreyfus took up residence at the Big Ten tourney to watch her son Charlie Hall, who's a walk-on sophomore forward for Northwestern. Both teams are in the West bracket (NU is the eight seed; Xavier the 11), but they couldn't meet until the Elite Eight. That's unlikely, so now is the time to enjoy a Best Celebrity Parent tale of the tape.
