BERKELEY, Calif. (AP) -Hall of Fame basketball coach Pete Newell will be remembered at several ceremonies over the next few weeks.
A funeral mass for the former University of California coach who died Monday at the age of 93 is scheduled for Nov. 24 in Rancho Santa Fe.
A tribute to Newell at the University of California, where he won an NCAA championship in 1959, is set for Dec. 3 before California's game against DePaul University.
