While his team is taking on the Wiley College LadyCats, Lamar University head women's basketball coach Leonard Drake will make an appearance on ESPN tonight, as part of the Central Michigan "Pride of the Program" segment which celebrates a historic moment from each of the 326 Division I basketball programs.
Central Michigan University's is scheduled to air tonight during the Duke at Indiana game on ESPN at 9 p.m.
The season-long initiative offers fans 30-second vignettes looking back at a significant event in each school's basketball history. They are narrated by the talent calling the game during which they air and feature video clips or still photos of the historic moment.
The event ESPN chose for CMU's moment is the 1975 NCAA Tournament victory over Georgetown as Drake made two free throws after time had expired to give the Chippewas a 77-75 victory.
