The Allen Arena playing court was named after former men's basketball coach Don Meyer in a ceremony held Saturday in Nashville, Tenn.
Meyer retired as the all-time winningest men's collegiate basketball coach with a record of 923-324 in 38 years as a head coach. He coached Lipscomb from 1975 to 1999 and directed the Bisons to the NAIA national championship in 1986.
Over 300 former players, family members, and special guests attended the ceremony held at halftime of the men's basketball game against Kennesaw State.
Northern State also honored Meyer by naming their court after him. Meyer took over the Northern State program starting with the 1999-2000 season and retired from coaching following the 2009-10 season. He remains on the Northern State staff as a Regent Distinguished Professor.
Miles, Rams on ESPN2
Tim Miles and his Colorado State men's basketball team will get some national exposure on Wednesday.
Colorado State (5-3) will play at national powerhouse Duke (7-1) at Cameron Indoor Stadium in Durham, N.C. Tip-off between the Rams and the No. 7 ranked Blue Devils is scheduled for a 6 p.m. start on ESPN2, with Mike Patrick and Len Elmore calling the nationally televised game.
Miles is a Doland native and a former Northern State men's basketball assistant coach. Rams' assistant coach Craig Smith worked as a graduate assistant at NSU during the 1997-98 season and earned his master's degree from Northern State in teaching and learning. Yankton graduate Colton Iverson is on the Rams' roster, but is sitting out this season after transferring from the University of Minnesota.

New USD coach
The University of South Dakota on Monday announced that Joe Glenn will be the next Coyote head football coach.
The former quarterback and wide receiver graduated from USD and returned there as backfield coach in 1974. The announcement comes just two weeks after the university announced that coach Ed Meierkort's contract would not be renewed. His contract expires on June 30, 2012.
The 1971 USD graduate, and 2006 USD Hall of Fame enshrinee, is back at his alma mater ready to guide a program on the FCS level in which he won a national championship.
Glenn, 62, led Montana to the NCAA Division I-AA national title (now FCS) in 2001, while compiling a 39-6 record in three seasons from 2000-02. He won the 2000 Eddie Robinson Award as the national coach of the year in the FCS.
He also led Northern Colorado to Division II national titles in 1996 and '97 during a 98-35 run over 11 seasons from 1989-99. Most recently, Glenn had a 30-41 record and one bowl appearance in six seasons (2003-08) at Wyoming before being fired after the 2008 season. He had been in semi-retirement since then.
Glenn also coached four seasons at Doane from 1976-79. Overall, he has a 188-100-1 career record in 24 seasons. South Dakota, which had a 6-5 record, will join the Missouri Valley Football Conference next year.
