New hoops coach. Luke Flockerzi is Skidmore’s new men’s basketball coach. He replaces John Quattrocchi, who retired last spring. “Coach Q” led the T’breds for twenty years, guiding them to eight league tournaments. Flockerzi was assistant coach at Amherst College, which he helped take to four Division III national tournaments. A varsity player at Grinnell College, he earned a master’s in sport management at UMass-Amherst.
