Debbie Ryan to receive coaching honor

Former Virginia coach Debbie Ryan will be one of the three recipients of the Lapchick Character Award, a four-year-old honor recognizing her character and coaching ability. Ryan, former Princeton men's basketball coach Pete Carril and longtime Mount St. Mary's men's coach Jim Phelan will be feted at a ceremony on Nov. 17 at New York's Madison Square Garden.

Ryan will be the fourth women's basketball coach to earn the tribute, following Tennessee's Pat Summitt, the late Kay Yow and former Texas coach Jody Conradt.
