COLORADO: Russell "Sox" Walseth, the winningest men's coach (261-245) at the school, died at his home two years after contracting cancer. He was 77. Mr. Walseth also guided the women's team from 1980 to '83 to a 77-21 record. He is believed to be the first person to coach both the men's and women's teams at the same NCAA school.
