Ace player Becky Hammon faces familiar opponent Kurt Miller in the WNBA Finals

As Aces coach Becky Hammon and Sun coach Curt Miller paced through the first game of the 2022 WNBA Finals, the man took an integral part of both journeys in the competition from the 2,000-mile run. Sitting at home in Atlanta, Tom Cullen watched the Aces claim a 1-0 series lead, doing so without having an interest in rooting. “It’s really hard to pick a side,” he says. Regardless of who becomes the champion this year, Colin will be happy: “I’m going to be a winner one way or another.”

The reason is that just before the start of the 1998 college basketball season, Colin was hired as the head coach for Colorado State. He inherited a team with Hamon as a budding star goalkeeper. Miller was one of the assistant coaches he brought in.
