Bobby Knight Tickets to Go on Sale Feb. 14

2/11/2013

 

Bethel University is proud to present an evening with legendary Basketball Coach and ESPN Analyst Bobby Knight Friday, April 19 at 7 p.m. in the Rosemary and Harry Crisp II Arena on the campus of Bethel University. Tickets go on sale this Thursday, Feb. 14.

Knight currently serves as a basketball analyst for ESPN. He retired as the winningest coach in NCAA history with 902 wins-mostly coming at Indiana University and Texas Tech University. He also coached at West Point.

While at Indiana, Knight led his teams to three NCAA championships, one National Invitation Tournament (NIT) championship, and 11 Big Ten Conference championships. He received the National Coach of the Year honor four times and the Big Ten Coach of the Year honor eight times. In 1984, he coached the USA men's Olympic team to a gold medal, becoming one of only three basketball coaches to win an NCAA title, NIT title, and an Olympic gold medal.

Coach Knight was one of college basketball's most successful and innovative coaches, having perfected and popularized the motion offense. He has also been praised for running clean programs (none of his teams were ever sanctioned by the NCAA for recruiting violations) and graduating most of his players.

The event will serve as an athletic fundraising event for Bethel's 30 athletic programs. This past year, Bethel University provided over 800 students an opportunity to earn a top notch college education as a student athlete.

Tickets will go on sale this Thursday at Bethel's home basketball game against Freed-Hardeman University. Beginning February 15 tickets can be purchased in the Bethel University Bookstore, via phone at (731) 352-6445 or at remaining Bethel home basketball games. Fans can pay by cash or check. Most credit cards will also be accepted.
