Joe Vancisin, who coached the Yale men’s basketball team for 19 seasons and won three Ivy League championships, died on Monday at the age of 98. Vancisin was honored as Yale’s first Legend of Ivy League Basketball at the inaugural league tournament in 2017.
“Joe was a wonderful friend and a passionate basketball coach who cared dearly about Yale and all the young men that he mentored,” Yale basketball coach James Jones said in a statement. “I feel blessed to have known him and will miss my friend.”
