Basketball writers to honor Henderson alum

David Worlock, a 1992 Henderson State graduate, will receive the Katha Quinn Award from the U.S. Basketball Writers Association for service to the media.

Worlock has served as director of media coordination and statistics for the NCAA basketball tournament since 2013 and has been with the NCAA since 2001. He also oversees a 15-member staff responsible for providing media services and statistics for all of the NCAA’s championships.

It was his work at the NCAA Final Four that brought Worlock praise for his level of cooperation and attention to detail for the many services he provides the media, according to the U.S. Basketball Writers Association.

“In the midst of trying times for basketball writers, Dave Worlock has been an adamant ally and advocate in the NCAA office,” said USBWA President Pat Forde of Yahoo Sports.

Worlock graduated from Henderson in 1992 with a degree in journalism. He served as Henderson’s sports information director from 1993-2001.

Worlock will receive the award April 4 at the USBWA’s annual awards luncheon at this year’s NCAA Final Four in Houston.
