Shaka Smart is the head coach of the VCU college basketball team. He's also the current object of Dick Vitale's affection, a master motivator, and a frequent trending topic on Twitter these days. So between now and the start of the Final Four on Saturday, expect to hear his name approximately 4,592,237 times accompanied by some off-the-wall fact about him that has very little to do with basketball. Fun! Fortunately, Slate cut right to the chase recently and asked his brother to pen a piece about why he's having so much success right now. SPOILER ALERT: Turns out, cats who kick it at the library in college do increase their chances at winning in life. Go figure! [via Slate]
