42 Nominees Announced for Inaugural Class of HBCU Black College Basketball Hall of Fame

HBCU Black College Basketball HOF

The HBCU Black College Basketball Hall of Fame announced its 42 nominees for the inaugural class of 2022 today. Last week the HBCU Black College Basketball Hall of Fame announced that it was planning to build the first ever basketball hall of fame for HBCU players, coaches and contributors in a HBCU city.

The founder of the HBCU Black College Basketball Hall of Fame, LaMont “ShowBoat” Robinson, a former HBCU player at Central State University, said this has been long overdue to honor the HBCU basketball history both from a standpoint of an annual induction ceremony and a world class facility.

Many great players and coaches and teams from HBCUs have been forgotten and have never gotten their RESPECT, or the media coverage it deserves. Robinson went on to say he hopes that HBCU Black College Basketball Hall of Fame will bring that much needed recognition for the players and coaches past, present and in the future, because everyone is not going to be inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.
