By Chris Horton @HortonBBallSite

Coach Menelik Fernandes welcomes Chris Horton to the Rising Coaches YouTube Series, Run It Back.

Chris Horton on Run It Back Episode 9

Last week I was fortunate enough to be on the Run It Back podcast and YouTube series with Coach Menelik Fernandes. Coach Fernandes is one of the best coaching minds I've had the chance to be around so I was honored when he asked me to join him for an episode. During our time, Coach Fernandes and I examined one of my team's (Willamette University) games from this past season and what a potential rematch would like if both teams were to "run it back".
