BASKETBALL: Marquette’s Hopkins earns IBCA Hall of Fame nod

UNDATED – Longtime Marquette basketball coach Todd Hopkins has been selected for the Illinois Basketball Coaches Association’s 2020 Hall of Fame class.

Hopkins, also a State-champion baseball coach for the Crusaders, coached the Marquette girls’ basketball team for 17 seasons from 1999 to 2016, amassing a 371-118 record (.759) with five Regional championships, two Sectional titles, and 11 consecutive 20-wins seasons from 2002 to 2012.

Hopkins took over the Marquette boys’ basketball program late in the 2015-16 season, and coached the Crusaders to the first of two Regional titles in his tenure. He led Marquette to a 28-3 record and a Regional crown last season, matching the second-highest win total in program history.

Hopkins will be inducted along with the rest of the 2020 class during a ceremony in May.
