  • Lewis Andreas was the head coach for Syracuse University's men's basketball and football programs beginning in the 1920s. The Sterling, Illinois native played baseball, basketball and football at University of Illinois as a freshman before transferring to Syracuse. He then played football and baseball, but ironically not basketball, for the Orangemen before embarking on his coaching career. Andreas coached the Orangemen basketball team from 1924 to 1950, except for two years in World War II when the team was suspended due to travel restrictions. He guided the Orangemen basketball program to a 355–134 overall record in 24 years, including the Helms Athletic Foundation national championship in 1925–26. They finished 19–1 that season and were led by standout Vic Hanson. In football, Andreas compiled a 15–10–3 overall record between 1927 and 1929. He also 'had a cup of coffee' in the professional leagues as a player for the Syracuse Pros.
