Hall of Fame Coach Conradt visits Tyler

The Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame announced its new class earlier this week.

Wednesday night, a previous inductee was in East Texas.

Former Texas basketball coach Jody Conradt was in Tyler in support of the Texas-Exes club and their scholarship fundraiser and dinner.

The hall of famer finished her 31 year career at Texas with 900 wins. She took a moment to talk to KLTV 7 Sports about coming to East Texas.

"I have not been to this part of the state for quite some time," Conradt said. "It is always fun this time of year, because everyone is celebrating Texas Independence Day, and traditionally the Texas-Exes clubs get together this time of year. So, we kind of take turns."

" I was really happy to come here. I got to play some golf and I got to see a beautiful part of the state. So, it has been fun."

    Jackson is back for Lufkin.Jackson is back for Lufkin.

    Like Longview, Lufkin is always talented. Before the Panthers begin District 12-6A action, they'll play a loaded East Texas schedule featuring the Lobos in week 1, followed by Nacogdoches and John Tyler. Normally a 7 and 4 campaign would be considered a success, but not in Panther nation. In fact, despite making the playoffs every year, Lufkin hasn't advanced past the first round since 2012.

    Our Red Zone Rundown continues with the other two Class 6A programs in East Texas. In District 11-6A with John Tyler and Tyler Lee, who we featured Monday night, Longview figures to challenge for the league title in 2017. In fact, the Lobos and Lions shared the district championship a year ago. It's no secret, Longview is used to winning and it does so by running the football and playing sound defense.
