Philadelphia, PA- Philadelphia University Men's Basketball head coach Herb Magee will be on ‘Daily News Live' tonight (12/9) to discuss his 50th season at Philadelphia University and his illustrious career. Daily News Live runs on Comcast Sports Net (channel 62 in greater Philadelphia area) from 5-6 pm.
This season will be a special one for Coach Herb Magee in that it marks his 50th year at PhilaU, as a student-athlete, assistant coach and head coach. During the 2008-2009 basketball season, Magee achieved an all-time record of 880 career wins, passing the lifetime wins of two other extraordinary coaches - former North Carolina coach Dean Smith and former Kentucky Coach Adolph Rupp.
In 2009-10, Magee could break former Indiana basketball coach Bobby Knight on the list of All-Time wins (903) if the Rams win at least 24 games. The Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame nominee has come a long way.
