HENDERSON, Ky. (WFIE) – The University of Evansville men’s basketball head coach David Ragland will be a focal part of a local Black History Month event happening later this week.
Organizers at Henderson Community College say Ragland will be their featured speaker for the event this Thursday.
Ragland joined the Purple Aces as head coach in 2022 after a one-year stint as an assistant coach at Butler University.
The Harrison graduate kicked off his collegiate career as a player at Missouri Southern State College in Joplin, where his team went on to the NCAA Division II Final Four during his freshman year.
He would later transfer to the University of Southern Indiana where he became one of the team’s key players for two seasons.
We’re told the event is planned for Thursday, February 15, 2024, at 11 a.m. at the Preston Arts Center.
