KAR EVENT: Coaching legend Judt Heathcote featured guest

Jud Heathcote, the burly 1945 South Kitsap graduate who was raised along the shores of Manchester, pulled himself to the top of the college basketball world. The signature moment was a magical season in 1979, when Heathcote’s Magic Johnson-led Michigan State Spartans beat Larry Bird's Indiana State Sycamores 75-64 in the NCAA title game at Salt Lake City. At the Kitsap Athletic Roundtable event, he poked fun at Harshman, the former Washington, Washington State and Pacific Lutheran coach. Jud assisted Harshman seven years at WSU.
