The details (from wikipedia)


Richard W. Holub (October 29, 1921 – July 27, 2009) was an American basketball player and coach.

A 6'6" center born in Racine, Wisconsin, Holub played college basketball at Long Island University, and was a member of an NIT championship team in 1941. His college career was interrupted by a stint with the Air Force during World War II, but he returned to school in 1946, and led his team in scoring during the 1946−47 season.

After being drafted by the New York Knicks in the 1947 BAA draft, Holub spent the 1947–48 season with the team, then embarked upon a seventeen-year coaching career at Farleigh Dickinson University. During his tenure as coach, he achieved a 233−167 record. He also taught English at Farleigh Dickinson. In 1981, he became an academic adviser for the University of Connecticut's athletic department.

Holub died on July 27, 2009, in Sun City West, Arizona.
