Hall of Fame coach Tarkanian hospitalized in Vegas

LAS VEGAS (AP) Family members say Naismith Hall of Fame basketball coach Jerry Tarkanian remains hospitalized in stable condition at a Las Vegas hospital where he's being treated for pneumonia.

His son and daughter-in-law, Danny and Amy Tarkanian, said Friday that doctors at Valley Hospital Medical Center are still conducting tests.

Danny Tarkanian says doctors were ''pretty positive'' about his dad's prognosis.

Family members including Lois Tarkanian say the 84-year-old former UNLV Runnin' Rebels coach has had several visitors since he was admitted Wednesday to the hospital intensive care unit.

Tarkanian was hospitalized for 10 days in April after a heart attack, his second.

Tarkanian led three schools to the NCAA tournament, including the 1990 UNLV team that won a national title.
