IBCA Hall of Fame a just reward for Elgin's Turek
Jan 15, 2015 8:15 PM - Sports writers loved Lee Turek. Officials may not have liked him all the time. And the girls who played basketball for him at Elgin High may not have liked him all the time. But sports writers loved him. One thing Turek always had going for him, win or lose, was his candor. Most times, that candor was more on display after a loss than a win. Many of the things Turek had to say after a basketball game never saw print, and never will. Another thing Turek always had going for him, and still does, was his passion for the game of basketball, for the athletes he coached and for Elgin High School. And on Saturday, May 2 Turek will receive a just reward for his career when he is inducted into the Illinois Basketball Coaches Association Hall of Fame.
