The setting was familiar, the seat wasn't.

Jamaal Tatum, the leading scorer in Helias basketball history, returned to Rackers Fieldhouse on Friday night. Not in the Blue and Gold, but on the other side of the scorer's table as an assistant coach for the Eldon Mustangs.

"I'm just trying to help the team, help the players develop into better players," Tatum said after the Mustangs' 62-50 loss to the Crusaders.
