Canada's Coach Wooden


BRANDON, MANITOBA. October 19, 2004

Former players and associates of the Brandon Bobcats will be holding a dinner to pay tribute to Coach Jerry Hemmings, long-time coach of Brandon University Men's Basketball team.

Coach Hemmings' illustrious career has spanned over 30 years and he is the winningest coach in Canadian university sports history. In a coaching career that started in 1974, Coach Hemmings won 734 games, 19 conference titles and four national championships. He truly built the Bobcats into a Tradition of Excellence.

In 1991, Coach Hemmings led Canada's National Student team to a silver medal in the World University Games. He was assistant coach on the Canadian National "A" team in '89, '90 and '94.

Coach Hemmings 734 career wins would place him 15th overall among NCAA Division 1 coaches, and ahead of established bench bosses like John Chaney (Temple), Mike Krzyzewski (Duke) and Lute Olsen (Arizona). http://www.ncaa.org/stats/m_basketball/coaching
