Longtime Lincoln-Way East girls basketball coach Jim Martin has always felt a bond with his fellow coaches, so earning admiration from those within the profession means a bit more than getting it from outsiders.

That’s why Martin was so touched when he heard he’d been chosen for the Illinois Basketball Coaches Association Hall of Fame.

He was inducted into the hall in a May 4 ceremony in Normal.
