"Working with student-athletes as a teacher and coach for the past thirty-six years has enabled me to enjoy a career which has been completely gratifying," Buckley continued."As an educator, I always endeavor to teach basketball so that the players will learn how to play the game properly, but more importantly, gain an appreciation for it.Success, then, becomes a product of this effort."
