Kevin Ollie and Geno Auriemma will be in New York on Wednesday to collect another of the rewards of their dual championship seasons.

The Winged Foot Award, an imposing crystal basketball given by the New York Athletic Club to the men’s and women’s championship coaches, will be presented, as it has been each year since 1996, at the NYAC, across from Central Park.

There is a reception and banquet Wednesday night, and a day of golf following the award, so it is a sweet treat to cap a championship season.Here is more on the award.
