Pictured for a story about the start of the 1961 basketball season at Transylvania College were, from left, Assistant Coach Lee Rose, team captain Jackie Lucas and Coach C.M. Newton. Newton, the former University of Kentucky basketball and baseball player, was in his fifth year as Transy’s head coach in 1961. He left that position to become the University of Alabama’s head basketball coach in 1968. He went on to be the coach at Vanderbilt and in 1989 came back to UK as Athletic Director. A member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, Newton died Monday at age 88. Herald-Leader Archive Photo
