One of the best basketball coaches past away this past Sunday without any mention from any members of the national media.  His team the UTEP Miners (Texas Western) won the NCAA title with a starting lineup that consisted of African-Americans which was a first.  This happened during a time of civil unrest.  Coach Haskins' teams dominated the WAC and teams always new that on any given year the Miners could the NCAA tournament under his leadership.  He was respected by his peers and was inducted into the basketball Hall of Fame.  All members of the media that like to promote civil rights are missing on an opportunity by not recognizing "The Bear".
