1. The basketball gym where Charles Oakley and Ben Wallace played college ball is located in a building now known as the Belgian Friendship Building on the campus of Virginia Union University in Richmond. The structure began its public life as the Belgian Pavilion at the 1939 World’s Fair in New York. It was originally intended to be repatriated, but Nazi occupation made that impossible, so the building was donated to the college, which previously had no on-campus basketball arena.
