John Calipari will be honored for his time at UMASS as he will be inducted into the New England Basketball Hall of Fame.
This from CoachCal.com:
Coach Cal, a former head coach at Massachusetts, is one of a number of New England basketball figures that will be inducted into the New England Basketball Hall of Fame on Saturday in Worcester, Mass. The New England Basketball Hall of Fame recognizes people whose excellence has contributed to the rich legacy of New England basketball.
Although Calipari has won more than 500 collegiate games, a national championship and made four Final Fours, he will be recognized Saturday primarily for his achievements and contributions at UMass. From the 1998-89 season until 1995-96, Calipari guided a struggling program at UMass to the top of college basketball.
I am positive this won’t be the last Hall of Fame John Calipari will be honored in the future.
