WASHINGTON - Part of the celebration of the 75 years of March Madness from the NCAA and the National Association of Basketball Coaches (NABC) this past season was the unveiling of one-of-a-kind paintings celebrating each of the national championship coaches who led their teams into history.

A painting honoring John Thompson Jr. and the Georgetown Hoyas of 1984 was unveiled during the year and if you're looking for that special Father's Day gift for your dad or husband, or for something neat for that Hoya in your life, you can still order the painting, with a 20 percent discount available this week.

The original art pieces, designed and painted by world-renowned artist Opie Otterstad, are part of a collection of 75 individual paintings, one for each of the 75 national championships from 1939 through 2013.

The original pieces of art were auctioned off on the NCAA website, but limited edition reproductions have also been made available for purchase by visiting here: http://marchmadness-art.cbscollegestore.com/store_contents.cfm?store_id=526&dept_id=19123&product_id=231696. This limited edition reproduction (Size 25.5" x 17") will be signed by the artist. The artwork will be printed on canvas with mirror edging and stretched on a wood frame.

A portion of the proceeds from the auction will benefit the NABC Foundation, which supports Ticket to Reading Rewards (TTRR), the College Basketball Experience (CBE), and the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame.

"We're pleased to celebrate the crowning achievements of the coaches who have guided their teams to championships over the past 75 years," said Jim Haney, executive director of the NABC. "This collection of artwork will serve as a unique and permanent reminder of these coaches' accomplishments on the court and their incredible contributions to the game of basketball."
