Hall of Fame Old Bro reminisces ....

For all of you Old Bro's who were a part of the chapter house in the very early 80's, I'm sure you remember that UCLA basketball coach (at the time) Larry Brown joined Lambda Chi as an honorary member (EpSig 866).

Coach Brown, a point guard himself, played his college ball at North Carolina, won a gold medal with USA Basketball in the Olympics, and played professionally in the old American Basketball Association.

He has coached in both college and the pro's, and is the ONLY coach to have won both an NCAA title and the NBA championship.  His NBA teams have won over 1,000 games.

For all of his accomplishments, Coach Brown was enshrined in the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2002.

Currently, Coach Brown is leading the Southern Methodist University Mustangs in Dallas, TX, and recently crossed paths with Old Bro Dan Godwin (EpSig 812), who is now a reporter and anchor for the local Fox TV affiliate in Dallas.

Dan's interview with Coach Brown touched on both basketball as well as their shared experiences as Lambda Chi's at UCLA.

As always, if any of you Old Bro's out there have any news to share about what's up lately, or about any Old Bro get togethers, or just about anything with an EpSig flavor, send it in and I'll publish it for all to enjoy.


Cheers,
