Coach Dale Brown honored at gala

BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - The naming of ‘Dale Brown Court' at BRBVA's Team Sportsplex on Perkins Road headlined a night of salutes to the legendary LSU Coach.

Much like his coaching days when record crowds jammed the Maravich Assembly Center, the dinner gala at L'Auberge Casino Hotel Thursday night was packed. A who's who of LSU basketball greats attended. Shaquille O'Neal and Mahmoud Abdul Rauf were among the dozens of former tigers who came out to support their coach.Brown came to LSU in 1972 and during his 25 years made the Tigers relevant in a sport where they'd been mentioned in only brief spurts.
