I met a guy a number of years ago, Vin Parise. No, not on the set of the Soprano’s or at a rest stop on the Jersey Turnpike, but Vin can hang with the best of them. Vin Parise is a basketball analyst for WFAN Radio, MSG High School Basketball and Cox Communications. Back then, he was an eager kid who wanted to learn to coach. He did.
In 2008, Vin began his media career after coaching eight seasons of college hoops at Fairleigh Dickinson, Rutgers and Iona. In addition to VPHOOPS.COM, he is also the college basketball blogger for WFAN.com.
His site is informative, funny and insightful. Vin has a very good feel for the basketball world in and around the metropolitan area.
This season, Vin will serve as a color analyst for Cablevision’s brand new channel, MSG Varsity. He will also host the TV pregame show for Providence and URI basketball on Cox Communications in Rhode Island.
Vin will also be making regular appearances on WFAN Radio and will serve as an analyst for Iona College Men’s Basketball.
I will bring in things throughout the year from Vin, but bookmark his site for metro NY/NJ basketball and especially the inside insight on the Big East.
