Gang, I know that we don't rank the NCAA Basketball Hall of Fame, but I did think it was worth mentioning that the ten man class of 2012 has been announced. This includes:
Joe B. Hall who succeeded Adolph Rupp at Kentucky and led the Wildcats to a championship in 1978.
Patrick Ewing who was a megastar for the Georgetown Hoyas, and later became a Basketball Hall of Famer with the New York Knicks.
Earl Monroe who was a forty point per game scorer at Winston Salem State.
Willis Reed who led Grambling to three NAIA Championships.
Claude Lovellette who was a star at powerhouse Kansas, and was the Nation's leading scorer in 1952.
Dave Robbins who won over 700 games at Virginia Union.
Phil Ford who is the second all time leading scorer at North carolina (which says something!)
Kenny Sailors who was a star at Wyoming and historically speaking is credited with creating the jump shot.
Jim Host and Joe Dean who are entering as contributors representing Kentucky and LSU respectively.
We congratulate these fine men for their induction to the NCAA Basketball Hall of Fame!
