Bill Bradley, who followed a Hall of Fame basketball career by serving in the U.S. Senate, has been selected to receive the Court of Honor Award from the National Association of Basketball Coaches Foundation.

Bradley, who led Princeton to a Final Four and played on two NBA championship teams with the New York Knicks, will receive the award May 17 in New York.

The award is presented to someone who has roots in college basketball, values those roots, and has gone on to distinguish himself in his profession, exhibiting the highest standards of leadership.

Bradley, a member of the gold medal-winning U.S. Olympic team in 1964, represented New Jersey in the Senate from 1979-1997 and was a Democratic presidential candidate in 2000.
