WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Donald Trump is set to present basketball legend Bob Cousy (KOO'-zee) with the Presidential Medal of Freedom this afternoon. The medal celebrates individuals with a wide range of achievements and is the nation's highest civilian honor. The 91-year-old Cousy played for the Boston Celtics from 1950 to 1963 and won six league championships along with the 1957 MVP title. Cousy will be the second person to receive the award this year from President Trump. Golfer Tiger Woods received the honor back in May.
