MILWAUKEE, WI (WTAQ) - A funeral mass will be held Saturday in Milwaukee for college basketball coach Rick Majerus.
Milwaukee is his home town.
St. Louis University held a public memorial service last night to honor the Wisconsin native.
He compiled a 517-and-216 career record in 25 seasons of coaching, spending the last five leading the Billikens. His team reached the third round of the NCAA tournament last March.
Majerus had announced he was taking a leave of absence to deal with his health problems last August.
He died of heart failure in Los Angeles last Saturday.
Majerus coached Marquette University from 1983 to 1986.
