B O A R D OF T R U S T E E S
Of active NCAA Division I men's basketball coaches, he stands sixth in wins, having coached his 609th win this past season. He has coached Illinois to 20-plus win seasons in nine consecutive seasons and into the NCAA post-season tournament in twelve of the last fourteen seasons. In 1989, he led the Illini to their first tournament Final Four appearance since 1952. Six of his former players now play in the National Basketball Association. This consistently high standard of success in one of the strongest basketball leagues in the country has been accomplished in a professional manner in the face of adversity, many obstacles, and great personal tragedy. His teams won against very talented and competitive players in the Big Ten. His abilities, having in 1993 guided a team picked by pundits to finish deep in the second division of the Big Ten to a third place finish and an NCAA berth, have finally been recognized by a media panel which has named him 1993 Big Ten Coach of the Year. The Trustees and the University community have recognized Lou's abilities and talents for years and applaud this recognition as long overdue. And in congratulating Coach Henson on this signal honor, the Trustees further express their appreciation for his representation of the University with dignity, integrity, and honor through the years.
On motion of Mrs. Gravenhorst, this resolution was adopted unanimously.
Trustee Begovich noted that he had distributed a written report to the members of the board. (A copy of this report is on file with the secretary.) He also told his colleagues that there would be a group of student leaders as guests at the trustees' luncheon. Trustee Lawless thanked Trustees Lamont and Reese for their attendance at a student leaders' luncheon that was held at the Chicago campus in the past month. He also asked his colleagues for more discussion at some time of the three missions of the University.
The board considered the following reports and recommendations from the president of the University.
