WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - An Evening with Coaches Gene Keady and Bob Knight, moderated by Bob Hammel, is Sunday, Oct. 29, at 3 p.m. ET, at the Purdue University Elliott Hall of Music.

Tickets go on sale to John Purdue Club members Friday, Aug. 11, and to the general public Wednesday, Aug. 16.

Seated together onstage, Knight and Keady will chat with author-sportswriter Hammel, based on his insider knowledge of the men and the game.

Keady is one of the most respected men's coaches in college basketball history, earning six National Coach of the Year awards. As head coach at Purdue University from 1980 to 2005, he led the Boilermakers to six Big Ten Championships and 18 NCAA Tournament appearances, and is a member of the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame and the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame.

Knight served as Indiana's head coach from 1971 to 2000, spanning Keady's Purdue career by 20 years. Across four decades in Division I, he posted a 902-371 career record, second only to that of his protégé Mike Krzyzewski, while seeing 98 percent of his players graduate. "The General," as he is known, also coached at Army and Texas Tech and led the U.S. national team to a gold medal in the 1984 Olympic Games.

Hammel is a legend in his own right, having served 30 years as sports editor for the Bloomington Herald-Times. A longtime friend of Knight, he co-authored the bestselling autobiography Knight: My Story as well as Knight's book The Power of Negative Thinking. Among many honors, he was named Indiana Sportswriter of the Year 16 times by the National Sportscasters and Sportswriters Association. He also is a member of the U.S. Basketball Writers Hall of Fame and a recipient of the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame's Silver Medal Award and the national Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame's Curt Gowdy Media Award.
