It was a moment that would have seemed improbable 12 years ago — longtime coach Don Meyer walking onto the basketball court at Lipscomb University, with friends and university officials there to celebrate the naming of the court in his honor.
As Meyer spoke while surrounded by dozens of his former players, his voice choked with emotion — not just because of his love for them, but also his love for the university at which he worked from 1975 to 1999 before leaving because of a bitter disagreement over athletic affiliation.
“I made a lot of mistakes coaching here, but we did a good job of getting the right kind of guy to come to Lipscomb,” Meyer told the crowd during halftime of a Lipscomb-Kennesaw State game at Allen Arena on Lipscomb’s Nashville, Tenn., campus.
