"McCall, who coached the original men's basketball state champions of 1951 and 1952, is a member of the DePauw University Hall of Fame and Indiana High School Basketball Hall of Fame," reports the newspaper. The induction ceremony will take place tomorrow night.

McCall, who passed away in November 2003, led the Tiger men's basketball program from 1958-1978, and retired from the University in 1981. He was the all-time leader in basketball wins (182) until February 2003, when that mark was eclipsed by current coach Bill Fenlon.
