Wiley Brown Chalks Up First Win

Congratulations to former U of L great Wiley Brown. He has secured the first of many wins as the new head coach of the Indiana University-Southeast basketball team. His Grenadiers defeated Purdue University-Northeast 75-74 on the road in their season opener.

Athletic Director Pat Mzorowski said IUS was very fortunate to secure Wiley’s services. “If I had a son playing college basketball, I would want him playing for a coach like Wiley Brown,” he said. “We believe he will be a great coach.”

Brown, a starter on U of L’s 1980 NCAA championship team, is the latest Pitino aide to become a head coach. Joining him as an assistant coach was former teammate Scooter McCray, another U of L favorite.
