Dean Smith to be honored today


Smith and fellow coaching legend John Wooden are scheduled to receive Lifetime Achievement Awards during a Final Four ceremony today in a downtown hotel.

Both coaches were asked to choose two people to speak for them at the event, and Smith selected his former center.

"With all the people coach Smith knows and respects, and all the former players and coaches he had to choose from, I was just flabbergasted that he would pick me," said [Brad] Daugherty, who also may pick up an award this weekend.
