ROCK HILL, SC - A STEP UP, Inc., founded by Johnny and Felicia Allen, is proud to announce the A STEP UP Assistant Coaches Hall of Fame Class of 2020, Presented by Worth Advisors.

The Class of 2020 will be inducted into the Hall of Fame on Tuesday, May 5, 2020, during the Symposium's Hall of Fame Induction Breakfast from 7:30-9:30 a.m. at the uptown Sheraton Charlotte Hotel. Former Tennessee assistant coaches Al Brown and Jolette Law are among those being inducted. Joining them will be Baylor's Bill Brock, Karl Hobbs of Rutgers, the late Bill Guthridge of North Carolina, Tommy Lloyd of Gonzaga, Kenny Payne of Kentucky and Bob Starkey of Texas A&M.

In 2019, A STEP UP, Inc. became the first to exclusively recognize NCAA men and women 'assistant' basketball college coaches with the distinction of the Hall of Fame honor. This year A STEP UP will also 'honor the past' by saluting a retired men's and women's assistant basketball coach whose body of work as an assistant coach is worthy of recognition and celebration.

The A STEP UP Assistant Coaches Hall of Fame Committee received recommendations from individuals, coaches, the media and other professionals from across the nation. Each year, our Hall of Fame committee will research the accomplishments, success and the body of work of each recommendation to develop the pool of candidates to be considered for the Assistant Coaches Hall of Fame ballot. Voting is based on the candidates' track record of success, outstanding and significant contributions to the game as well as high character, integrity and respect among colleagues.

Brown was an assistant for the Lady Vol program for seven seasons from 1995 to 2002, aiding Pat Summitt as the program won three consecutive NCAA titles from 1996 to 1998 and posted two more Final Four appearances, including a runner-up finish in 2000. In league play, Brown was part of SEC regular season championship-winning staffs in 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001 and 2002 as well as victorious units at the SEC Tournament in 1998, 1999 and 2000.

Law spent five seasons on the Tennessee bench from 2012 to 2017, helping the program to SEC regular season titles in 2013 and 2015 and a conference tourney crown in 2014. UT made three NCAA Elite Eight appearances during her time in Knoxville.
