For the McDevitts, basketball is a family affair
Matt McDevitt and his father, Mike, will savor tournament games this weekend.

... It promises to be quite a weekend in the McDevitt household. On Friday night, Matt’s father, Mike, will coach the St. Joseph’s College women’s basketball team in a Division III NCAA tournament game at Tufts.

St. Joseph’s earned its automatic NCAA berth with an 81-70 overtime victory in Standish against Emmanuel College in the Great Northeast Athletic Conference championship game Saturday.
