Tubby Smith to Host Coaches Clinic on Oct. 31

Tubby Smith and the University of Minnesota men's basketball program will host its third annual Coaches Clinic on Saturday, Oct. 31. The registration fee is $100. Check-in is scheduled for 12:30 p.m. at Williams Arena.

Basketball coaches will get an opportunity to interact with Coach Smith and his entire staff about the Golden Gophers offensive and defensive systems. The Minnesota staff owns a total of 95 years of combined college basketball coaching experience and will share their knowledge of the game in both clinic and Gopher practice sessions.

The clinic will also include a practice session led by Northern State University's Don Meyer. Meyer, who will be beginning his 38th season as a college head coach, surpassed Bob Knight as the winningest coach in collegiate history last season and currently holds a record of 910-310 (.746). Meyer has amassed a record of 208-90 (.698) in 10 seasons on the bench in Aberdeen.

Prior to Northern State, Meyer spent 24 years coaching NAIA I David Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tenn. There, he reached the 700-win plateau faster than any other coach in the history of college basketball.

For more information on the clinic or to register, please call the Minnesota Basketball Office at (612) 625-3085 or visit the Gopher men's basketball page at www.gophersports.com.
