Badgers assistant coach juggling responsibilities

Posted: Updated:
MADISON (WKOW) -

Lamont Paris has been juggling his responsibilities as a Badgers assistant coach with his duties as a son. Paris has been flying back and forth from visiting his mother in Findlay, Ohio. She recently suffered a stroke.

"It's been challenging to do that and then come back here. The team always welcomes me back with open arms any time I'm here. They understand why I'm gone. I come back here and it's a very easy transition to doing basketball stuff."

For Paris, his return to basketball duties has been a welcome distraction.

"When I'm on the court, I'm just focused on helping guys improve, the task at hand, scouting reports, coaching guys from play to play. That's a good couple of hours for me."
