Josh Hersch is a fellow who likes to stay busy. As you probably know, he coached 2 teams for the Minnesota Stars this past summer. They were cleverly designated as Stars 11th Hersch and Stars 8th Hersch. Both finished #2 in our (Northstar Girls Hoops) team rankings and both had some signature wins.
