Blending two loves: hoops and helping others

Why shouldn’t we care about other people, Michael J. Rosenkrantz asks rhetorically, adding that he refuses to live a selfish lifestyle. 

“I feel like it’s really important to think about the larger community, and it’s not just the Jewish community — it’s bigger,” says Rosenkrantz. “But in the Jewish faith, there’s a lot of talk about giving back, and I definitely try to do that.”

Rosenkrantz, 60, is a Los Angeles native who moved to Tucson in September from Nepal to teach alongside Peter Hughes, head coach of the University of Arizona Women’s Wheelchair Basketball team, and learn the intricacies of wheelchair basketball.

He chatted with the AJP on Friday, March 31, in between games at the National Wheelchair Basketball tournament in Louisville, Ky., saying he hoped that the Lobos could turn around their 1-2 record with one game left in the series.
