Coach Don Meyer Memorial Services Scheduled

CREATED May 19, 2014

ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) - Memorial services have been scheduled in South Dakota and Tennessee for Don Meyer, one of the nation's winningest basketball coaches.

He died Sunday in his Aberdeen home at age 69. Meyer was diagnosed with inoperable cancer after a September 2008 car accident.

Northern State University says a public service will be held at 3 p.m. Saturday in the Barnett Center in Aberdeen on the court named for the former men's basketball coach.

A second memorial service will be held June 1 at Lipscomb University in Nashville, Tennessee, on Don Meyer Court in Allen Arena.

Meyer led his teams into the playoffs 19 times and compiled a 923-324 during his 38-year career, most of which he spent at Lipscomb and Northern State.
