NEW YORK (HBO/SMU) - SMU head coach Larry Brown will be featured on the next edition of "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel" that is set to premier on Tuesday (Feb. 25) at 10 p.m. ET/9 p.m. CT on HBO.
The Mustangs are 21-6 (10-4 American) and receiving votes in both national polls. SMU is back in action Sunday, as the Mustangs travel to No. 21/21 Connecticut for a Sunday 2 p.m. ET/1 p.m. CT tip on CBS Sports Network.
HBO's Synopsis: At 73, Larry Brown is a true basketball legend. As a player, he was selected to three ABA all-star games, won an ABA championship and captured a gold medal at the 1964 Tokyo Olympic Games. As a coach, Brown won an NCAA title and Naismith College Coach of the Year award with the Kansas Jayhawks in 1988, an NBA title with the Detroit Pistons in 2004 and was named the NBA Coach of the Year in 2001, leading the 76ers to the NBA Finals. Brown is the only head coach in history to win championships with both a college and pro team.
Over his 40-plus years in coaching, he has earned a reputation as a turnaround strategist who makes losing teams into winners. Now at the helm of Southern Methodist University (SMU), his 15th team (including the 2004 Olympic team), the New York-bred Brown has done it again. After years of losing in half-empty arenas, the Mustangs are entering the final stretch of an impressive season that has seen them nationally ranked for the first time in nearly three decades and packing the stands. REAL SPORTS host Bryant Gumbel goes one-on-one with the Hall of Fame coach to find out what keeps him motivated.
