BEECH GROVE, Ind. -- An event over the weekend at Beech Grove High School was about more than just games - it honored the legacy of basketball coach Matt English who has been battling cancer for more than seven years. 

English has been the head coach of the Beech Grove Men's Basketball team for the past 10 years, and he's in the midst of his third - and most difficult - bout with brain cancer. 

Over the weekend, the school renamed their court "Matt English Court" in honor of Coach English and his legacy.
