Indiana Pacers and Indiana Fever sponsor HOF's Silver Medal

NEW CASTLE – The Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame announces a partnership with the Indiana Pacers and Indiana Fever as sponsor of the Hall’s prestigious Silver Medal Award.

The Silver Medal, which includes induction into the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame, is awarded for outstanding contributions to Indiana high school basketball in a capacity other than Indiana high school basketball player or coach.

“The Indiana Pacers and Indiana Fever are proud to lend their support to the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame and its prestigious Silver Medal Award,” Jim Morris, president of Pacers Sports and Entertainment, said. “The Silver Medal recognizes those individuals who have made extraordinary contributions to this game that is so much a part of the Hoosier fabric. In a like manner, the Indiana Pacers and Indiana Fever seek to represent Hoosiers at the highest level of basketball. To have our names associated with the Silver Medal is an honor.”

“On behalf of the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame, we are extremely grateful to the Indiana Pacers and Indiana Fever for their sponsorship of the very prestigious Silver Medal Award and their continuous support of the Indiana Basketball Hall Of Fame,” Hall of Fame President Jim Callane said.

Paul Patterson, retired after 34 years as head men’s coach of Taylor University, will receive the 2014 Indiana Pacers Silver Medal for his contributions in men’s basketball at the Hall’s 53rd Annual Men’s Awards Banquet on Wednesday, March 26.

Current Notre Dame women’s head coach Muffet McGraw will receive the 2014 Indiana Fever Silver Medal for women’s basketball as part of the Hall’s 13th Annual Women’s Awards Banquet on Saturday, April 26.

Past recipients of the award include college coaches such as Bob Knight, Gene Keady, and Tony Hinkle, sportscasters and sportswriters including Tom Carnegie, Bob Collins and Bob Hammel, and administrators including Arthur Trester and Phil Eskew.

Recent Silver Medal recipients include current Indiana Fever coach Lin Dunn as well as David Anspaugh and Angelo Pizzo, creators of the feature film Hoosiers.
