Now in his 30th year as Oxy’s head men’s basketball coach, Brian Newhall received a much deserved celebration with a surprise halftime ceremony and post game reception in the Booth Hall courtyard with more than 70 former and current players from all different generations and decades in attendance, on Saturday, Jan. 26, 2019.<br />
Newhall is the winningest coach in Oxy history and has a 100 percent graduation rate in his 30 years at the helm of the program. His resume boasts multiple SCIAC Championships and NCAA Playoff appearances, along with a run to the NCAA Division III Elite Eight in 2003 and the only perfect 14-0 season in SCIAC history. Newhall has not only coached at Oxy, but was a SCIAC Champion and SCIAC Player of the Year during his playing career at Oxy in the early 80s.<br />
