That handsome mug to your right belongs to famous Cavaliers' center Zydrunas Ilgauskas. Everyone's favorite 7'3" Lithuanian can now add to his (already lengthy) resume a new position: Assistant High School Basketball Coach. 

That's right, folks. If you missed the news last week, Z is now helping out the St. Ignatius basketball squad a couple times per week. Coach Brian Becker, Iggy's all-time winningest bball coach, is returning after a six-year hiatus. He's looking to improve on the Wildcats' 15-9 mark from last year under Sean O'Toole.

Becker and Ilgauskas are buds. 

Z won't be sitting on the bench during Ignatius games, but he's certainly making his presence felt in Sullivan gymnasium. 

"Anybody who is 7-3 and walks into the gym commands your attention," SIHS Athletic Director Rory Fitzpatrick told the NEOMG.
