When Dale Brown arrived in Baton Rouge, Louisiana in March 1972, he arrived with a dream that was perceived by many who knew the LSU Basketball program as impossible. The dream was to make basketball a fan favorite in Tiger Country and to make it a nationally respected program as well.
Dale Brown’s straightforward, determined approach, combined with his knowledge of the game, excellent recruiting skills, and his positive philosophy made his dream a reality. Equally amazing was his 25-year career as the Tiger’s head coach, winningest coach in LSU Basketball history. He also is the second winningest coach in SEC history. 104 of 160 of Brown’s players received their college degrees and those that attended LSU for four years had a graduation rate of 84%.
