Meet Kris Campion Rivers, wife of NBA star player and coach Glenn “Doc” Rivers. Kris and Doc met when they were freshmen in college at Marquette University in Milwaukee back  in 1979. She met Glenn one day after class. He walked past her and said, “You know, you’d be kind of pretty if you washed your hair once in a while.” Kris Campion was too astonished to be offended. “He came back and said, `Now I don’t want to give you the wrong idea. I don’t want to date you. But I have a friend I might want to fix you up with,’ ” Kris said. The friend was basketball teammate Marc Marotta. He and Kris dated for a year or so, but one summer, he went overseas, and when he came back, Kris and Glenn had fallen in love.

Kris said, “People were so startled.” “Friends asked me, `What’s it like dating a black guy?’ ” I told them, `That’s the problem. You see him as black. I see him as a man.’ ”  At that time, the idea of a mixed couple at the school didn’t sit well with some people. As a result, someone slashed Kris’ tires and keyed her car because of the fact that she was white and had the audacity to date a black man. Also, someone found out where Kris and her parents lived and spray-painted their home. Kris said the crank phone calls were crude and frightening. To this day, Kris thinks these racially motivated incidents played a key role in Glen’s decision to leave college early and head to the NBA.

Kris and Glenn married in 1986. They have four children: Jeremiah, Callie, Austin and Spencer. Their oldest son Jeremiah played basketball for Georgetown University before transferring to play for Indiana University. Their daughter Callie plays volleyball for the University of Florida. They also have  a younger son, Austin, who has verbally committed to the University of Florida men’s basketball team. Austin Rivers is considered a top 10 basketball prospect in the class of 2011.

Currently, Kris and Glenn live in Orlando, Florida with their four children.
