      Tarkanian Gets Senate Recognition

      Harry Reid took to the floor of the United States Senate to congratulate Jerry Tarkanian for his election to the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame.

      The Senate Majority Leader claimed the honor came 20 years late because of Tarkanian's long-running battles with the NCAA, which Reid says has complete control over college athletes.

      Tarkanian sued the NCAA in 1998 and ended received a settlement worth a reported $2.5 million.

      Reid added it is his hope that Congress will look into the NCAA sometime in the future.
