NY Athletic Club Winged Foot Award to go to coaches
NEW YORK -- Coaches Roy Williams and Kim Mulkey-Robertson
won their first NCAA basketball titles over a month ago. The
celebration hasn't stopped.
The two coaches will be given the New York Athletic Club Winged
Foot Award on May 19 at a dinner in their honor.
Williams guided alma mater North Carolina to its fourth national
title, beating Illinois 75-70. The former Dean Smith assistant
reached four Final Fours while coaching Kansas, but fell short each
Mulkey-Robertson led Baylor to a surprising 84-62 blowout of
Michigan State in the women's final. The former All-American guard
and Olympic gold medalist has helped revive basketball at Baylor,
which had a 7-20 record the season before she arrived. She also won
three national championships during her 19 years at Louisiana Tech
as a player and assistant coach.
