In 1952, Allen guided the Jayhawks to the NCAA Championship, and then took home a Gold Medal as an assistant with the 1952 USA Olympic Team. Allen was instrumental in the founding of the National Association of Basketball Coaches, and one of the individuals who helped basketball become an Olympic sport in 1936. Allen was in the first class elected to the Hall of Fame in 1959. Silver Relief medallion. In good condition; the tip of nose is worn and chipped.
