Brown to host coaching clinic
University at Albany head basketball coach Will Brown will host a coaching clinic to benefit Coaches vs. Cancer Sept. 22 at SEFCU Arena.
The benefit for the American Cancer Society will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
“I am excited to team up with the American Cancer Society to host the Coaches vs. Cancer Coaching Clinic in the SEFCU Arena,” said Brown in a press release. “It will be a great day of basketball as we have put together a tremendous lineup of guest speakers. More importantly we will be raising money and awareness as we try to help in the fight against cancer.”
Brown, who led the Great Danes to the league championship last season, is the longest-tenured head coach in the America East Conference. He will be joined by new Siena head coach Jimmy Patsos, second-year Binghamton head coach Tommy Dempsey and Hartford’s John Gallagher. Others scheduled to appear include Matt Langel of Colgate and Boston University's Joe Jones.
The Coaches vs. Cancer program is a partnership between the American Cancer Society and the National Association of Basketball Coaches to “increase cancer awareness and promote healthy living among students, faculty and staff, fans and the community at-large.” The initiative has raised more than $87 million for the American Cancer Society.
Registration for the clinic is now open with an entry fee of $25.00. All proceeds benefit the Coaches vs. Cancer initiative. Day-of registration and admittance begin at 8:30 a.m.
