 NEW YORK (AP) - Naismith Hall of Famer Clarence ''Big House'' Gaines, who won 828 games in 47 years at Winston-Salem State, and John Kresse, who led the College of Charleston to an NAIA championship and four NCAA Division I tournament appearances, have been selected as the 2014 recipients of the Lapchick Character Award.
The seventh annual award winners were announced Monday. The award is named after the Naismith Hall of Fame coach and is presented by a group that includes Joe Lapchick biographer and former player Gus Alfieri. It recognizes those who have shown the character traits of Lapchick, who coached at St. John's and with the New York Knicks.
The awards will be presented at a luncheon in New York on Nov. 20 with the recipients honored that night during the 2K Classic, benefiting the Wounded Warrior Project at Madison Square Garden.
