McKeown, who is in his seventh season at Northwestern, previously coached at New Mexico State and George Washington University.

After the Wildcats' victory over Kent State, a video tribute to McKeown featuring Northwestern President Morton Schapiro and several of McKeown's friends and colleagues from his time in college basketball was shown on Welsh-Ryan Arena's videoboards. Check out the heartfelt tribute below.
