Tuesday, April 10, 2007

Memphis City Council members voted to name a street after a popular former Memphis State basketball player and coach.
"Larry Finch" signs will go up on Pendleton Street in South Memphis.

In 1973, in his senior year at Memphis State, Larry Finch lead the Tigers to the NCAA men's basketball championship game against UCLA.

Finch went on to become assistant coach and then head coach at Memphis State, now the University of Memphis. He was the head coach at Memphis State from 1986 until 1997.

Larry Finch is the all-time winningest coach in University of Memphis history.
