Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Bernard "Peck" Hickman (October 5, 1911 - February 20, 2000) is best known as the man who turned the University of Louisville men's basketball team into one of the nation's best. The Cardinals never had a losing season in Hickman's 23 seasons as head coach; prior to his arrival the program only had 11 in 33 seasons. Coach Hickman led Louisville to their first championship on a national level by winning the NAIB in 1948. In 1956, his team headed by All American Charlie Tyra won the NIT Championship. At that time, the NIT was a tournament equal in prestige to the NCAA tournament.show more
