Coach Hoover recently finished his second season at the helm at BHS. His Bruins are 31-15 over that time. Several coaches and administrators will be making their way to Indy to observe the induction ceremony.
“His had a long and successful career and his D1 camps are well-known. It’s great to see him rewarded for all he has done for basketball in the state of Indiana,” shared athletic director Tony Uggen, “It’s quite the honor.”
Congratulations to Coach Hoover!
