*(Detroit, MI) – The HBCU Black College Basketball Hall of Fame announced its 42 nominees for the inaugural class of 2022 today. Last week the HBCU Black College Basketball Hall of Fame announced that it was planning to build the first ever basketball hall of fame for HBCU players, coaches and contributors in a HBCU city.

The founder of the HBCU Black College Basketball Hall of Fame, LaMont “ShowBoat” Robinson a former HBCU player at Central State University, said this has been long overdue to honor the HBCU basketball history both from a standpoint of an annual induction ceremony and a world class facility.

Many great players and coaches and teams from HBCUs have been forgotten and have never gotten their RESPECT, are the media coverage it deserves. Robinson went on to say he hopes that HBCU Black College Basketball Hall of Fame will bring that much needed recognition for the players and coaches past, present and in the future, because everyone is not going to be inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame.

Robinson added that he and his staff have contacted HBCU to offer this one-of-kind project to come to their city as well as to host the annual induction ceremony, and he said the respondents have been great.

The next steps will be to have the hosting city chosen by January 2022, then announce the 15 inductees for the class of 2022, and that announcement will be in February at a press conference.
