LANGLEY, British Columbia - Today Trinity Western University Director of Athletics Murray Hall announced that TWU alum Pat Lee would be the interim coach for the Spartans men's basketball team until the University has completed its search and selected a full-time head coach for the men's basketball program.

"I have every confidence in Pat's leadership as he comes into a difficult situation. His extensive coaching resume, his success in dealing with student athletes and his personality are a solid blend of what is needed over the next several weeks for the Spartans men's basketball program," commented Hall. "Pat will remain with the team until the season finishes, at which time we are optimistic that a new head coach will have been hired."

Before his coaching days Lee played for the University of Calgary (1974-76, 1978-79) and Trinity Junior College (1968-71). Lee enjoyed a successful career at Calgary capped off by being named Canada West First Team All-Star after leading the conference in rebounding and ranking in the top ten in scoring. He participated in two national championships with Calgary in 1976 and '79.
