Head Coach of the Boy’s Varsity Basketball Team at
Brooklyn Collegiate Preparatory High School.
As a kid from Crown Heights, Malcolm would have never imagined he’d be the coach of a high-level varsity team in NYC. We discuss where he got his passion for basketball, his journey in playing, how he became the Brooklyn Collegiate coach, and how COVID-19 preempted his team to getting a bid to play at Madison Square Garden. This is the Pandemic Preempt. Along with my special co-host Jaquam Bodden from Hoop Dreams NYC, our conversation with Coach Connor, now.
