BEST SHRED OF HOPE FOR UMKC SPORTS 

UMKC hires basketball coach Kareem Richardson

Critics' Choice

"Kansas City's university." So say the most recent advertisements from the University of Missouri–Kansas City. Let's face it: If the school really wants to whip up a local frenzy of support, it's going to need more than decent medical and law schools and a world-renowned conservatory. It's going to need an exciting (read: winning) sports team. The school could be moving that way with its men's basketball program. The school hired coach Kareem Richardson to lead the Roos into their first season in the Western Athletic Conference. Richardson is hot off winning the 2013 NCAA Championship as an assistant coach with Louisville. The Roos will be his first turn as a head coach (his résumé includes assistant stints at Xavier, Drake and Indiana State), and we're hopeful that he can turn around a program that has languished for years. If Richardson can reverse the Roos' fortunes, the team's new home at Municipal Auditorium will easily be able to handle larger crowds.
