Everett S. Dean

Indiana’s rich basketball heritage was developed by legends like Everett Dean. After a fine three-year playing career at Indiana University during which time he was named a Helms Foundation First Team All-America in 1921, Dean moved on to Carleton College and began his coaching career. In 1924, he returned to coach at his alma mater, and in 1926, led the Hoosiers to their first Big Ten championship in the school’s history. In 14 seasons at IU, Dean’s teams shared three Big Ten conference titles. Dean left Indiana in 1938 and became a legendary figure at Stanford, leading his team to the 1942 national championship. Stanford won 28 games that year against only four losses. In 29 seasons Dean recorded 21 winning seasons and over 350 victories. Known as a true gentleman both on and off the court, Dean also authored two popular basketball books, Indiana Basketball (1933) and Progressive Basketball (1949).
