Its a good idea to be well prepared for a presidential debate. And, in the case of Republican nominee Donald Trump, he’ll have 902 Division I basketball wins on his side.
Prior to the first presidential debate of the election season Monday night, legendary Indiana basketball coach Bob Knight will be giving Trump debate advice.
You know it's an unusual campaign when @TeamCavuto is interviewing Bobby Knight because Bobby Knight is giving Trump debate advice.

Knight endorsed Trump in April 2016 after talking with him over the phone earlier that month.
“I just told him I thought that we needed him,” Knight said in an April Time article. “That right now, in this moment in time, he was the man who should be in charge.
The world of politics is very separate from the world of sports, so some could be unfamiliar with Knight’s accomplishments, which include being the second-winningest coach in men’s college basketball history.
However, at least now we know that if any basketball related questions come up during the debate, Mr. Trump will be more than prepared. Take note, Mrs. Clinton.

Knight isn’t the only person with a sports background to endorse Trump. Dennis Rodman, Mike Tyson, Rex Ryan, John Daly and Tom Brady all have endorsed or praised Trump in some capacity.
The debate takes place Monday at 9 p.m. ET and can be seen on CNN.
