        11月12日,新英格兰篮球名人堂在篮球的发源地斯皮菲尔德大学举办了一场篮球庆典活动。大学篮坛传奇教练吉姆•卡胡到场,而他与圣十字•西顿霍尔大学教练乔治•布兰尼之间的讨论更是将气氛炒到了顶点。1954年圣十字队获得了NIT赛事的冠军,你可要知道在那个时候NIT要比NACC联赛重要的多,它的决赛可是在著名的麦迪逊花园球场举行。
        如果你足够幸运能与“名人堂”的两位记者鲍勃•雷恩以及安利克斯•伍福共处一段时光,你就会明白为何他们会如此高度评价这一天。即便是这两位著名记者忘记的体育资讯都会比我们看过的多,他们对新英格兰篮球的报道值得他们的价值。
        而当天的研讨和座谈会则都由“标志”吉姆•尼尔森担当这一重任。


The New England Basketball Hall of Fame (NEBHOF) held a basketball celebration on November 12th at Springfield College (where Dr. James Naismith invented the game of basketball).  Legendary college basketball coach Jim Calhoun was the top honorary as well as delighting the guests with an engaging discussion moderated by former Holy Cross & Seton Hall coach George Blaney. The 1954 Holy Cross NIT Championship Team was honored and it should be noted that back in 1954 the NIT was actually a bigger championship than the NCAA with the NIT Finals played at Madison Square Garden.
If you have ever been fortunate enough to spend some time with HOF writers Bob Ryan & Alex Wolff you will now why their session to conclude the day was most entertaining. Both of these prolific sports journalists have probably forgotten more sports information than most of us have ever read. Their amazing recall of New England basketball was worth the price of admission.
A shout out to Jim “The Icon” Nelson who handled the heavy lifting throughout the day moderating several of the panel discussions on short notice.
