Ocean View will name its gym in honor of Jim Harris, who was the school's boys basketball coach for 33 years. Harris, Ocean View's first boys basketball coach, died of cancer in 2013.

The gym dedication is part of the Coaches For A Cause basketball event that begins with the Ocean View girls team playing Marina at noon and continues with the Ocean View boys team playing Laguna Hills at 1:30 p.m. Proceeds from the game go to the Jimmy V Foundation for Cancer Research.

Harris coached Ocean View to 665 wins, 19 league championships and two CIF-Southern Section championships. He also coached the school's girls basketball team for five years.

He was one of the more likable and respected coaches in Orange County athletics.
