Speaking of Richardson, he was raw when he showed up and had a terrible shot that he used when he played down low as a high school player. He re-did his shot and was crazy good by his senior year (1984). He is very comparable to Chase Audige. Kevin was quiet and bookish, but a hell of a player and a really good dude.

Interesting question: How many of us developed our unnatural attachment to W&M basketball during the period from the mid-70s to the mid-80s?

My guess is that our success during that era created a generation of MBB fans that exists to this day. Our drought from the mid-80s to the mid-00s means that we are missing several generations of fans.

I am hoping that our recent success will create new generations.

Against all odds, I am here in spite of being a freshman on 97-98 and not going to a game until 00-01.

Another reason the program and athletic department needs to honor and make that past history much more visible at Kaplan. I like the use of "historic Kaplan Arena" in their film clips, but dress Kaplan up to reflect the history. Wouldn't take much.

Would love to see beyond just basketball to create a "wall" highlighting all of the historic concerts.

This would be cool but not sure how it helps the BB program. Remember back in 1973-75 that we had awesome concerts and the hall was packed ...ran the student ushering then and would trade one concert usher if the student agreed to usher 2 MBB games in return. It was a blast.

I think the point would be to honor it as a historic all-purpose venue. Why not have a basketball wall, concert wall, graduation speaker wall....

I was lucky to wait the basement, preconcert dinner table for many performers, including John Denver, Bruce Springsteen, Jackson Brown. Will never forget a truly genuine John Denver walking up to introduce himself to me and shake my hand, then asking me to play ping pong on the game table set up in the basement before his concert. Remember the glass doors getting broken by the crowd at the Sly and the Family Stone concert over a very late arriving Sly, and who could ever forget the brilliant scheduling of the Grateful Dead on family/parents weekend. I, still, on occasion, pull up the YouTube full concert footage of Cat Stevens, originally filmed for "In Concert", but archived and never aired when he disappeared from public life.

I would love to be able to look at a chronological mural of all of the graduation speakers.

It all enhances the experience of attending basketball games, and giving current students a better sense of its place.

Terrific ideas. There's a W&M Hall of Fame Wall in Kaplan...why not the ones you suggest.

Speaking of history, there is an old black and white picture that ran in the Flat Hat of the first game at the Hall. The end without seats was open (maybe the big door had not been installed yet), and i think it was a winter game against UNC. The Flat Hat article may have been about the 10th anniversary of the Hall opening, as it was sometime during my attendance years 1979-83.

Maybe have something about the biggest games also, like the UNC win. Fun stuff. It just takes time and effort/money

RE: Can Nathan Knight be the best WMBB player of all time?
After the third Presidential debate at Phi Beta Kappa Hall in 1976, the two candidates went to the Hall separately, where the student body and others (packed house) had watched the debate on a big screen.

Jimmy Carter gave a serious campaign speech.

Pearl Bailey showed up with President Ford, and they did a light-hearted bit.

In 1993, Prince Charles was in the Hall for Charter Day.

Friday night movie night. Dances. Concerts. Commencement.

And if you lived across the street in the frat houses, and the nets were left in the upright position, countless pick-up hoops games on the main floor.

Definitely a place with a lot of memories for a lot of people.
