The Washington men’s basketball team will wear a patch with the initials ‘MH’ on their jerseys the remainder of the season to honor former legendary coach Marv Harshman who died April, 12, 2013.
Harshman coached in 1,090 collegiate games, which is the ninth highest in Division I history.
He coached 13 years at Pacific Lutheran (1945-58) and 13 years at Washington State (1958-71) before arriving at Washington in 1972.
In 14 years with the Huskies, Harshman led them to four 20-win seasons and five postseason appearances, including three NCAA tournaments berths (1976, ‘84 and ‘85) and two National Invitation Tournament berths (1980 and ’82). He recorded a 246-146 mark at the UW, which is second on the school’s all-time wins list.
Harshman completed 40 years of coaching in 1985 as seventh-winningest coach in college basketball with a 642-448 record.
