Dave Joerger was in college when he got hooked on pro basketball.

The Memphis Grizzlies head coach was a volunteer for the Fargo-Moorhead Beez in his final year at Moorhead State, which is now Minnesota State Moorhead.


“That experience with the Beez, being around the pro game, is where the pro basketball bug bit me,” said Joerger, who is from Staples, Minn. “That is where the game got into me.”
