he only Jewish head coach in
major men's pro sports, Larry
Brown will lead the Detroit
Pistons.
Brown has
coached pro or col-
lege basketball for
half his 62 years. He
was voted into bas-
ketball's Hall of
Fame last year. His
career highlights
include an NCAA
Brown
championship at
Kansas in 1988 and a berth in the NBA
finals with Philadelphia in 2001.
A 5'9" point guard at the University of
North Carolina, Brown won a gold
medal with the U.S. team at the 1961
Maccabiah Games in Israel. He later
coached the U.S. Maccabiah. team.
Brown will coach the U.S. team in the
Olympic Qualifying Tournament this
August, and in the 2004 Olympics. He
coached the Philadelphia 76ers for the
past six seasons.
Pistons President Joe Dumars called
Brown "one of the elite coaches in the
NBA." Brown said coaching the Pistons
is "a great opportunity for me ... The
future for this team is very promising
and I look forward to being part of the
success." Brown reportedly received a
five-year contract worth at least $25 mil-
lion.
North Farmington graduate Brad Jaffe
concluded a four-year tennis career with
Emory University in Atlanta by helping
his squad capture the NCAA Division 3
national championship.
Jaffe, Michigan's No. 1
singles champion in
.
1999, was Emory's cap-
tain this year. He was
15-2 at No. 3 singles
and also played No. 3
doubles. He won quar-
terfinal and final-round Jaffe
matches at the eight-team
NCAA final; his semi-final round match
was halted — with Jaffe leading — when
Emory clinched the overall match victo-
rY-

in singles and four times in doubles. He
owns Emory's highest career singles win-

ning percentage, .798.

bles team of junior John Beitner and
Steve Lim reached the final, as did the
Barons' No. 4 doubles combo of Justin

three state championship teams in one
high school season. Hitchcock and his
partner won the Division 1 tennis title at
No. 3 doubles in two sets to help Pioneer
capture the state Division 1 champi-
onship. Hitchcock was also part of
