Next Drew takes over at Valparaiso


VALPARAISO, Ind. (AP) - Valparaiso coach Homer Drew is retiring after 22 seasons at the school and former Crusaders star Bryce Drew will replace his father.

The announcement was made Tuesday.

Homer Drew won 640 games, seventh most among active coaches, and took the Crusaders to their only appearance in the NCAA regional semifinals.

It's the second time he's retired and turned the reins over to one of his sons. Scott Drew coached Valparaiso for one season after Drew's first retirement, then headed to Baylor, bringing his father back to the bench.

Bryce Drew is the school's career scoring leader and made the memorable buzzer-beating shot to beat Mississippi in a first-round tournament game in 1998.
