Phil Jackson headlines five Sioux Award recipients
The annual Sioux Awards Banquet was tonight and a big time name returned to Grand Forks.
Phil Jackson, who is in the Basketball Hall Of Fame and is an 11-time NBA Coaching Champion, came back to UND.
He played three years at North Dakota scoring 1708 points which is currently 7th all-time at the university.
In final season at UND, Jackson averaged 27.4 points per game which is still the record for highest scoring average in a season.
He is one of five individuals to receive a Sioux Award this year which is the highest honor given by the UND Alumni Association and Foundation for achievement, service and loyalty.
Jackson's loyalty began even before he made his way to Grand Forks.
Here are the five 2018 Sioux Award recipients.
Jackson is joined by Jeanne Crain, Lauris Molbert, Michael Lodoen and Mary Maring.
