St. Joseph’s earned an NCAA tournament berth with a victory over VCU in the Atlantic-10 championship game today, but the grandson of Coach Phil Martelli stole the show.

Four-year-old Philip, just a couple of rows behind Grandpa, aped Grandpa’s every move from drawing up plays to crossing his arms. And he looked adorable wearing a sport coat and an grownup’s tie.

Philip has done postgame press conferences this season, too. Let’s see the other March Madness coaches top this.
