h/t to @fakehiphopsucks for finding this story about Ron Hunter and Georgia State basketball.
"The Georgia State basketball team’s goodwill trip in August concerned little about basketball. The Panthers played four games and romped to four wins against club teams from Costa Rica. The real reason they were there was to give out shoes as part of the charity Samaritan’s Feet, which coach Ron Hunter has been a part of since 2008. They were also there to build their moral resume."
@RVAParks nails my thoughts on Kevin Pangos:
"Pangos enters what must seem like his fifteenth year at Gonzaga for WCC fans and he’s still as dangerous as ever. After a down year statistically in 2012-13 Pangos jumped back up to 14.4 points, 3.3 rebounds, and 3.6 assists per game. Look for his senior year to be a special one in Spokane."
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.
