Ohio State to honor Bob Knight when Buckeyes host son's team - SKY SPORTS

Staff report Sporting News
Ohio State will honor former Buckeyes player and Hall of Fame college coach Bob Knight at a game in December against Lamar, which recently hired his son, Pat, as head coach, The Columbus Dispatch reported.
The game, Dec. 20 in Columbus, will come a month to the day after Bob Knight, who was a member of the Buckeyes' 1960 NCAA championship team, is scheduled to be inducted into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame in Kansas City.
Former college basketball coach Bob Knight says a few words about Ohio State's 1960 national championship team and coach Fred Taylor during a halftime ceremony honoring the coach and team Sunday, Jan. 31, 2010, in Columbus, Ohio. Some of the most notable players from the 1960 championship team include Jerry Lucas and John Havlicek, named two of the top 50 NBA greatest players in history, and Bob Knight, college basketball's winningest coach.

Ohio State director of basketball operations Dave Egelhoff told The Dispatch via e-mail that he expects to receive a signed contract from Lamar within a week.
In the e-mail, Egelhoff said the game would be a “great time” to honor Knight, something Egelhoff said Ohio State coach Thad Matta has been a “big proponent of.”
Knight, who will be inducted Nov. 20, has 902 wins, the most by a Division I men’s coach, although it's likely Duke’s Mike Krzyzewski, who finished this season with 900 career victories, will have surpassed the record by then.
