ALEXANDRIA, La. -- First-year head coach. First-year basketball program. The list of things to expect in the inaugural season of a program do not usually include conference tournaments and, certainly not national tournaments. It would be even less likely that the list would include a spot for the head coach as a finalist for a national award or the eventual winner. But that is exactly what Larry Cordaro did in the historic first year at LSU Alexandria.
On Friday, Cordaro capped his magical run with selection as the on Don Meyer National Coach of the Year when he received the award at the Sports Insiders banquet in Indianapolis. In short order, Cordaro built a team that achieved a 23-4 overall record -- unbeaten at home -- and won the RRAC regular season and postseason tournament titles. The Generals received an automatic berth in the NAIA Division I Men's Basketball National Championship.
