What Ever Happened To Don Meyer?

Well, for one thing the former NAIA national championship-winning basketball coach at Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee and now HC at Northern State University in Aberdeen, South Dakota recently passed Bob Knight’s 902 career victory total to become the all-time leader in men’s college basketball history.

And for another, he did that while recovering from a near fatal car accident and battling inoperable cancer.

Having a bad day? Don Meyer would say that there is no such thing as a bad day.

    Thanks for sharing this as I would have never known. I remember Coach Meyer when I was at Lipscomb but the basketball program was weak, at best, and in the four years I was there, I only attended maybe a half dozen games of any kind. Their baseball coach, Ken Dugan, (I later learned) was an icon among collegiate coaches. I’m happy for Coach Meyer and hope he can beat the cancer.

    You’re welcome, glad to pass it along. I lived in Nashville in the early 90s and I saw his teams play several times. I remember his laser-like focus and intensity and that his son was playing point guard at the time.
