"Bill was coach at Berkeley Prep when Joe took the Tampa Prep job but accepted a college coaching position before facing his younger sibling," writes Joey Knight.

The article, published in today's paper, previews Joe Fenlon's " impending milestone. A victory at home Saturday against top-ranked Class 3A rival Berkeley Prep would be the 500th of Fenlon's career. To boot, the backdrop for the potential triumph would include his only son, Conner, a senior guard for the Terrapins."

Bill Fenlon was named the Tigers' head coach on April 23, 1992.  He previously led the men's basketball programs at Southwestern University and Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology.  Now in his 16th season at DePauw, Fenlon has an overall record of 222-195 and is the program's all-time leader in wins.  Last season Fenlon led the Tigers to a third straight appearance in the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference Tournament and a tie for fifth in the conference standings. The team is 9-3 this year and plays at Rhodes College tonight.
