NEW ORLEANS, La. - The head coach of the LR Trojans Women's Basketball team was in the spotlight at Thursday's Sun Belt Conference Championships.
Joe Foley was awarded the 2016-2017 Sun Belt coach of the year award but then handed it over to a colleague, Appalachian State University coach Angel Elderkin, who has been battling cancer. (LR beat Appalachian State to advance to Saturday's semi-finals).
