Basketball Legend Brian Shaw Receives Jacket

In a ceremony attended by more than 100 Denver-area Gauchos and their families, Gaucho basketball legend Brian Shaw was presented with a UC Santa Barbara letterman’s jacket. The award took place prior to a Denver Nuggets-New Orleans Pelicans NBA game Dec. 15. Shaw who played professionally for a number of years and then became Phil Jackson’s chief assistant coach at the Lakers, is now the head coach of the Denver Nuggets.
In remarks to the assembled Gauchos, Shaw said, “The best move I ever made in life was moving from St. Mary’s College to UCSB.” He said that as he travels around the country as a professional basketball coach he is met in every arena by the chant “Go Gauchos” and said he “feels the love.”
