Former Penn assistant basketball coach Ray Edelman has died

Former Penn assistant basketball coach Ray Edelman has died, Dick Weiss reports.

Edelman was on the staff of the 1970-71 Red and Blue squad that made the NCAA Tournament's Elite Eight.

That Ivy champion squad went 28-1 on the year, including a 14-0 mark in conference. Former athletic director Steve Bilsky was a key contributor to the team.

Apart from his time at Penn, Edelman also had coaching stints at Penn State, Haverford and Oregon. On Twitter, Weiss commented that he was a "great teaching mind."
