GREENSBORO, N.C. – UNCG will officially dedicate Lynne Agee Court during the Spartans' women's basketball contest against Samford at Fleming Gymnasium on Saturday.
The court was named in honor of longtime UNCG coach Lynne Agee, who retired in March after 30 seasons in Greensboro. Agee will be recognized at halftime of Saturday's contest, which begins at 2 p.m. Saturday's contest is also Alumnae Day, with all UNCG women's basketball alumnae invited back to campus.
Agee directed the Spartans to a 197-80 record at Fleming, good for a .711 winning percentage, and turned in 18 winning seasons out of her 22 in the facility.
UNCG won at least 10 games at Fleming eight times in Agee's tenure, including a school-record 12 in 2001-02 and 2006-07. The 2001-02 squad won its first 10 home contests, the second-best Fleming winning streak in school history. Agee directed UNCG to a school-record 13 straight wins at Fleming from Feb. 2, 1998, to Jan. 22, 1999, falling just days short of an undefeated calendar year at home.
Agee's teams suffered just three losses or fewer at home in more than half of her seasons in Fleming, doing so 12 times.

Agee finished her 33-year career with a 602-334 record, including a 556-311 mark in her three decades at UNCG. More than 35 percent of her wins at UNCG came on the court at Fleming.
For her achievements on the court and off, Agee was inducted into the UNCG Hall of Fame in 2004 and was a 2008 inductee into the Guilford County Hall of Fame. She was a seven-time conference coach of the year and was the first coach ever to lead a team to the NCAA tournament in all three divisions.
Tickets for Saturday's contest may be purchased at the door the day of the game. Saturday's game is also the FOX8 Gifts for Kids game, meaning fans who bring a new, unwrapped toy will receive a free ticket to the contest.
