CLARK TO BE INDUCTED INTO TULANE HALL OF FAME

Texas A&M-Corpus Christi men's basketball head coach Perry Clark will be inducted into the Tulane Hall of Fame this weekend as the Green Wave celebrate Homecoming on Saturday with a game against Army.

Clark rebuilt the Tulane program from the ground up in the late 1980s and early 1990s when the program was resurrected. The program had been dismantled due to NCAA sanctions.

"When you build a program from the ground up you definitely leave a part of you with the program when you leave because of the hard work, energy and dedication you put into it," said Clark. "It is certainly an honor to be recognized for what we achieved.

"I am humbled and deeply appreciative of this recognition."

In 11 seasons at Tulane, Clark compiled a 185-145 (.561) record, had six 20-win seasons, seven postseason appearances (3 NCAA, 4 NIT) and won the Metro Conference championship in 1992. He was the 1992 National Coach of the Year and a two-time Metro Conference Coach of the Year (1991, 1992).

Earlier this summer, Clark was enshrined in the Louisiana Sports Hall of Fame.
