5 named to Hall of Fame

The Spokesman-Review

ST. LOUIS – Last month, Jim Boeheim and Jim Calhoun became the first college basketball coaches with 700 wins to face each other. Monday, they shared the stage again, proudly holding jerseys signifying their election to the Basketball Hall of Fame.

“This is, beyond my wife and children, the most special day in my life,” Calhoun said. “When I was told the news, it was surreal.”

Coach and broadcaster Hubie Brown, Brazilian women’s star Hortencia Marcari and LSU coach Sue Gunter also were voted into the Hall. The new members will be enshrined Sept. 8-10.
