SHELTON WINS 2014 DON MEYER AWARD
DALLAS, TX -- Freed Hardeman's Jason Shelton is the recipient of the 2014 Don Meyer award, presented annually to the top NAIA coach in college basketball.
Shelton led Freed Hardeman to a school-record 29 wins and the deepest post-season run in program history, taking the Lions to the quarterfinals of the NAIA tournament.
The award is named in honor of former Lipscomb coach Don Meyer, who is one of the game's winningest coaches. In February of 2010 Meyer announced his retirement from coaching but continues at Northern State in the role of Regents Distinguished Professor and Assistant to the President. In 38 seasons at Hamline, Lipscomb and Northern State, he compiled an astounding 923-324 records.
