HUNTINGTON, Ind. (WANE) – When it comes to the Alford of Indiana, basketball is the family business – and business is good.
This week I.U. legend and current University of Nevada head coach Steve Alford is headlining a Huntington University basketball camp led by his oldest son Kory, who is coming off his first season leading the Foresters program. Additionally, Indiana Basketball Hall of Famer and family patriarch Sam Alford is lending his knowledge of the game to the camp, making it three generations of Alford coaches at Platt Arena.
Kory’s first HU team finished 16-11 overall in what was his first year as a college basketball head coach.
The younger Alford is cutting his teeth as a college head coach not far from where his father did, as Steve’s first head coaching job came at Manchester University in 1991. Steve went on to become the head coach at Southwest Missouri State, Iowa, New Mexico, and UCLA prior to Nevada.
