Allen Fieldhouse. Pay heed all who enter beware of the Phog. Not only was he a legendary coach but he became a KU basketball icon. They named their homecourt after him. Part of being a great coach is leaving your legacy and Phog Allen did that. He was the John Wooden of his era. He needs to be top 3 behind coach K and John Wooden.

Phong Allen was the first good coach. He invented March Madness. He was a legend. He set the stage for future legendary coaches like Coach K,John Wooden,Dean Smith,Roy Williams,and so on. So beware of the Phog.
