Tip-Off Luncheon to unite Triangle hoops coaches
Posted September 13
With basketball season less than two months away, the Triangle's Division-I basketball coaches will gather at the Triangle Men's Basketball Tip-Off Luncheon on Friday, September 22 at the Embassy Suites in Cary.
It's not often that coaches from Duke, North Carolina, NC State and NC Central will be in the same room at the same time, but it will happen for this event. First-year head coach Kevin Keatts at NC State, North Carolina head coach Roy Williams, NC Central head man LeVelle Moton and Duke assistant coach Jeff Capel (filling in for Mike Krzyzewski, who is still recovering from off-season surgery) will all be in attendance.
When all four men will get together, it's usually for a good cause and in this case, all proceeds from the event will go to benefit amateur and Olympic sports in the Triangle region.
The Triangle Sports Commission will host the event, and tickets can be purchased by the public to attend. From 11:30-12:00, attendees can mingle with the coaches and lunch is served at 12. At 12:30, there will be a coaches' panel moderated by WRAL's own Jeff Gravley.
