PLAYERS: Mark Madsen
Former Stanford star Mark Madsen is coming back to the school as an assistant basketball coach. Coach Johnny Dawkins said Tuesday that Madsen will replace the retired Dick Davey on his staff. Madsen will primarily work with post players. Madsen helped lead the Cardinal to four NCAA tournament appearances and the 1998 Final Four during his collegiate career. He averaged 10.9 points and 7.9 rebounds per game in his career and earned the nickname ''Mad Dog'' for his aggressive style. He played nine years in the NBA with the Lakers and Minnesota, winning two championships in Los Angeles. Madsen spent the past two years on campus completing his MBA and accompanied the team on a trip to Spain last September.
