MEDFORD—In what seems like a yearly occurrence, another national honor has been bestowed upon three-time national champion and former Oregon Tech basketball coach Danny Miles.
A year after being selected to the College Basketball Hall of Fame, Miles has been selected to the Small College Basketball Hall of Fame.
He’s one of 12 that will be in inducted in October in St. Joseph, Missouri, joining a Hall of Fame that has slightly less than 100 members currently in it.
Miles is already a member of the Medford High School Hall of Fame and the State of Oregon Sports Hall of Fame, among others.
He was in the NewsWatch 12 studio to detail why this one holds a special meaning.
"It's a wonderful honor. The names in the Small College Hall of Fame are as impressive if not more so than the big College Hall of Fame because many of the Earl ‘The Pearl’ Monroe's those kind of people couldn't be in the major colleges back then because people of color didn't have the opportunity to play," he said.
