Kevin has been involved in basketball for his entire life.  Kevin’s dad, John, was Sports Information Director at DePaul University during the fifties, sixties and seventies. Kevin started selling programs there at age eight and attended Ray Meyer’s Basketball Camp in the sixties.  While in high school, Kevin worked on the Stat Crew at DePaul and learned much about the importance of statistics in basketball.  While attending the university as a student basketball manager, McCann became the school’s official timer – a position he has remained in for the last 40-plus years.  Kevin was also a basketball official for many years before becoming principal at Jamieson School in 1991.  Kevin has attended 21 Men’s’ Final Fours and took in his first ever Women’s’ Final Four in 2007 with his three daughters. For his accomplishments to the game, McCann was inducted into the Illinois Basketball Coaches Association Hall of Fame in 2007 as a Friend of Basketball.  Kevin also attended the Super Bowl in 2006.
