Tall tales from Rose Marie Battaglia

This story is a week old, but if you haven't seen it yet, this Full Court Press story about longtime girls/women's basketball coach and Final Four fixture Rose Marie Battaglia is a fun read. Battaglia is perhaps best known as Anne Donovan's high school coach at Paramus Catholic High, and even then, the coach remembers the 6-foot-8 Donovan as someone she always looked up to.

“Everyone knew when I was going to yell at her because I’d start to pull out the row of bleachers,” Battaglia said. “I’m 5-foot-2, so I had to get up there to see the top of her head.”
