MEET THE COACH: Luke Flockerzi, a one-time Rochester assistant basketball coach, will lead the men’s basketball team when the Yellowjackets open the season in November. The former head coach at Skidmore College was introduced this spring as the successor to Mike Neer ’88W (MS), who retired after leading the men’s basketball program for 34 years. Flockerzi (pronounced flah-CURT-see) is no stranger to Rochester’s program, having served as an assistant to Neer in the 2006–07 season. In 2007, he moved to Skidmore and by his third season, he led the Thoroughbreds to a record-tying season for conference wins and overall victories. His teams also were recognized for their classroom work, leading the Liberty League in All-Academic Team selections in 2009–10.
