Marty Dowd has been the men's tennis coach at Catholic University for more than a half-century, and he's finally going to the NCAA tournament. He'll arrive with his sense of humor firmly intact.
"My priorities have changed greatly," Dowd said. "Fifty-three years ago, winning tennis matches is what I'd wake up in the morning thinking about. Now, in my 53rd year, my No. 1 priority is staying close to a men's room."
