ATLANTA -

A coach who has been a part of Georgia basketball history got courtside seats at Monday's Atlanta Hawks game courtesy of Second Wind Dreams.

Calvin "Monk" Jones left his mark on Georgia sports with a winning record as the coach at Carver High School and as one of the first African-American coaches at UGA.

Now in his 80s and living at a Dunwoody nursing home, he wanted to go to a Hawks game.

Second Wind Dreams is a non-profit that fulfills the dreams of elderly people living in long-term care.
