Accessed August 2 2007. "Ben Carnevale, who turns 86 on Oct. 30, has had the kind of life some people might call legendary. In fact, when you look at his life, which began in a house just off the last trolley stop on Gaston Avenue in Raritan Borough, you might agree. The 1934 Somerville High School graduate is a member of the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame. He is also the winningest coach in United States Naval Academy history, a survivor of a ship that was torpedoed during World War II, and somebody who had a lot to do with building the NCAA basketball tournament."] He graduated from New York University, where he was a member of the 1935 national championship team and played in the first National Invitation Tournament in 1938. He served as a Navy officer during World War II, receiving the Purple Heart. At the time of his death, he was living in Williamsburg, Virginia.
