Men's Basketball - Wed, Dec. 8, 2010
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - With last Saturday's win over host Mt. Vernon Nazarene in the championship game of the A+ Autobrokers Holiday Invitational, Trevecca men's basketball coach Sam Harris became the school's all-time winningest men's basketball coach.
The victory was Harris' 286th at the helm of the Trojan program, one more than Frank Wilson, who was recently inducted into the Trojan Athletic Hall of Fame. Harris played for Wilson at Olivet Nazarene (Ill.) University and later replaced him as the Trevecca men's basketball coach.
Harris is now 286-265 in his 18th season at Trevecca, with four NAIA National Tournament appearances and two TranSouth Championships. He has had four players selected as NAIA All-Americans and eight named Honorable Mention All-Americans. Two of Harris' former players have been elected to the Trojan Athletic Hall of Fame, and two others have been named TranSouth Player of the Year. Harris has 447 wins overall in his coaching career.
Trevecca's next game is Saturday afternoon, when they host Fisk University (3-8) at 4 p.m.
