Larry Brown – One of the best professional and collegiate coaches ever turned out, huddles with his present day SMU team where he has revived their basketball program. In the late-fifties Larry Brown, along with Art Heyman, and Connie Dierking, was credited with igniting The Golden Age of Long Island basketball. Brown is the only coach in basketball history to win both an NCAA national championship (Kansas, 1988) and NBA title (Detroit, 2004).
