NEW YORK (AP) - Former Georgetown coach John Thompson, the late
Kay Yow and high school coaching legend Jack Curran will receive
the second annual Lapchick Character Awards.
The announcement Wednesday says the three will be honored at a
luncheon at Madison Square Garden on Nov. 19.
The award, started by a group including Joe Lapchick biographer and former player Gus Alfieri, recognizes coaches who have shown the character traits and coaching skills of the Hall of Famer. Joe Lapchick coached St. John's and the New York Knicks.
