Coach came to my first basketball camp in 1979 in Manchester and spoke every year for me. I used his shooting guide as a coach. I remember one summer he had a team camp and we went. It was one and done. Coaches were harder to deal with than kids he said laughing. I also provided some of his speaking at clinics with material as his opening remarks about the triangle and 2 on the referees. My wife had her picture made with him after speaking at final 4 on Sunday morning in Indianapolis. She want to say how nice he was that morning and she want to give her sympathy to the family. He. Is really responsible for so many young men becoming coaches that love the game and stayed in it like me.
