Salute planned for former Razorback Joe Kleine

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (AP) - The Arkansas Sports Hall of Fame says former Razorback center and NBA player Joe Kleine, now an assistant basketball coach at Ark.-Little Rock, is to be honored with a salute banquet.

A news release Wednesday said Kleine would be the subject Nov. 18 of the hall's second annual fall salute. Last year, the organization honored former Razorback football standout Jim Lindsey.

The dinner, preceded by a 6 p.m. reception, is planned for the Stephens Center on the UALR campus.
