Longtime Purdue coach recognized with Massimino

Tuesday, April 2, 2013 - 4:11 am

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Longtime coaches Gene Keady and Rollie Massimino, and former U.S. congressman Tom McMillen, headline the 2013 class that will be inducted into the College Basketball Hall of Fame.

Keady began his career at Western Kentucky before going 512-270 during 25 years at Purdue, while Massimino spent 30 years coaching Stony Brook, Villanova, UNLV and Cleveland State.

McMillen starred for Maryland in the 1970s before serving in Congress from 1987-93.

Joining them in the Hall of Fame will be George Raveling of Nike, Bob Hopkins of Grambling, George Killian of FIBA and the 1963 team from Loyola University of Chicago, which broke through racial boundaries and eventually defeated Cincinnati in the national championship game.

The class will be inducted during a ceremony Nov. 23 in Kansas City, Mo., as part of a three-day celebration that also includes the CBE Classic at the nearby Sprint Center.
