  • Former Texas men’s basketball head coach Tom Penders is being inducted into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame, the Austin American-Statesman reports. From the Statesman: “Penders coached at Columbia, Fordham and Rhode Island before coming to Texas. He energized the Erwin Center crowd with an up-tempo style as the team became known as the ‘Runnin’ Horns.’ In 10 seasons, Penders went 208-110 and made eight NCAA Tournaments. The Horns reached the Elite Eight in 1990 and would win three Southwest Conference championships.”
