Ken Trickey, a former basketball coach at Iowa State, Oral Roberts and other schools, died Tuesday. He was 79. ORU President Mark Rutland said in a statement announcing Trickey's death that the coach's exciting basketball program helped the university become known throughout the country. Trickey led Oral Roberts to the round of eight in the NCAA tournament in 1974 and was the school's wins leader until Scott Sutton passed him last year. Trickey had a 214-116 record in two stints at ORU, from 1969 to `74 and from 1987 to `93. Trickey played at Middle Tennessee State and was coaching the Blue Raiders when they beat ORU 115-89. That convinced the Rev. Oral Roberts to pursue Trickey as his program's coach the following year. Trickey also coached at Oklahoma City University.
