A bittersweet day for Knox

From the Register-Mail:

Saturday was a bittersweet day for the Knox College men’s basketball  team, as it lost to Lawrence 93-67 on the day it dedicated Tim Heimann Court, in honor of the school’s longtime coach….

The dedication of the court to Heimann, who coached the Prairie Fire for 24 years, took place at halftime, an event that brought former players from all over the country to honor him.

“It may be my name (on this court),” Heimann said during the dedication, “but each one of you guys have been a piece of that because you put a piece of your heart and your soul into it.”
