- Niberts Honored by National Association of College Basketball Coaches… Most people in this area know Coach Gregg Nibert as the head coach of the PC Blue Hose men’s basketball team for the last 27 years… During that period he has experienced much success on the court with his teams but what some people do not know is that he and his wife Peggy have experienced a different kind of success off the court serving as foster parents for children suffering from the effects of abuse, neglect and substance abuse… For this and other reasons the Niberts will be honored with the Guardians of the Game Award on April 3 in Houston by the NABC… Now for much more about the Niberts and their work in this area click here….
