BIO
The famed coach of Long Island University in the 1930s and 1940s, Bee helped to make college basketball in the Big Apple a major event. In 18 seasons at LIU, Bee led the Blackbirds to two NIT championships (1939 and 1941). Under Bee, LIU became a national power, winning 43 consecutive games, including undefeated seasons in 1935-36 and 1938-39. When the Blackbirds played at Madison Square Garden, the fans roared. Bee was called the game's greatest defensive strategist by his contemporaries. He was very influential in the implementation of the 3-second rule. He was head coach of the NBA's Baltimore Bullets in 1952-1954. In 1968 he Co-founded the Kutsher's Sports Academy in Monticello, New York. A prolific writer, Bee authored the critically acclaimed "Chip Hilton Sports Stories for Young People", and was a frequent contributor to a variety of sporting publications.
