Randolph-Macon College to Dedicate Newly Renovated Court to Two Coaching Legends
SALEM , VA - Randolph-Macon College will honor a pair of legendary coaches when they dedicate its new refurnished basketball court to Paul Webb and Hal Nunnally on Saturday, December 2nd when the men's team hosts Washington and Lee at 2:00 p.m.
Webb, a member of the ODU Sports Hall of Fame coached at ODU from 1975-1985.
The festivities will take place during half-time of R-MC's game with the Generals. There is a luncheon for donors to the project prior to the game and a reception for all former players between the men's and women's basketball doubleheader scheduled for that day.
The dedication caps off a project that saw a total of 2.6 million dollars used to improve the campus' Crenshaw Gymnasium. Such improvements included new lights, air conditioning, performance court, new bleacher and chair back seats, new baskets and scoreboards.
The court will be dedicated to Nunnally who was the head coach of the Yellow Jackets for 24 seasons before retiring in 1999. He led R-MC to a 431-232 record during his tenure on the sideline. Nunnally and his squads captured five conference championships and posted 20 wins on ten different occasions.
Webb spent 19 years as the head of the basketball program at R-MC from 1956-1975. During that time, Webb garnered 315 wins with the Yellow Jackets before handing over the reins of the program over to his assistant Nunnally prior to the start of the 1975-76 season.
