MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- James Ware was hired Tuesday as director of men's basketball operations at Minnesota, replacing J.B. Bickerstaff.
Ware has served as the program coordinator for the work study program at the university since January 2001. He played in two state tournaments for Hopkins High School, where he was a finalist for Mr. Basketball. Ware was a two-year starter at Texas Tech, earning All-Big 12 honorable mention in 2000.
