Re: ESPN: Coach Mooney's Immeasurable Impact

We're incredibly lucky to have Chris and that Chris realizes how special Richmond is. nice to see a guy earn everything he's gotten and think nothing of it unless it helps others

re: Richmond

Some sweet memories, thanks E. Always good to share. On the 84 team #32 is father of current Trey Davis. #10 Greg Beckwith is current color man on the radio. #20, Johnny Newman, one of the greatest Spiders of all time, lenghty career in the NBA.

Re: CENTENNIAL CELEBRATION: OPENING NIGHT

Robins Tribute Highlights Basketball's Opening Night


Two games for $1, selected concession items for $1, t-shirt and poster giveaways, retro uniforms worn by the men's team, autographs and a special halftime ceremony honoring one of the greatest moments in Richmond basketball history will tipoff the season-long celebration of 100 Years of Spider Basketball Friday at the Robins Center.

The women's team christens the season with a 4 p.m. game against Longwood. The men's team hosts Liberty at 7 p.m. All tickets for the doubleheader are just $1, with selected concession stand favorites also offered for only $1. Friday night's season opener is also a Kids Club game, with members receiving free admission.

In honor of 100 Years of Spider Basketball, the men's team will debut retro uniforms, to be worn at selected home games this season. The uniforms are virtually identical to those worn in the mid 1980's when Richmond was making its first NCAA appearances. The uniforms include the memorable barber shop pole red, white and blue piping down the sides. A retro-style 100 Years t-shirt and commemorative 100 Years poster will be given away to the first 2,500 fans.

At halftime of the men's game, a special ceremony will recognize the unprecedented support of Richmond Athletics from the Robins Family, while honoring E. Claiborne Robins, Jr., the visionary and driving force behind the Robins Center, which opened 40 years ago.

URI lists its first men's basketball game as having been played on 02-25-1904. URI has had a team in all but three of the last 109 seasons to date. No team was fielded in 1904-05, 1913-14, and 1914-15.

Temple 1894
Butler 1896
UMass 1900
Fordham 1902
Dayton 1903
URI 1904
GW 1906
St. Joe's 1909
Richmond 1912
Duquesne 1913
SLU 1915
Bona's 1916
Xavier 1920
La Salle 1931
Charlotte 1965
VCU 1968

re: Richmond

Wow, once Charlotte leaves VCU will be by far the youngest program in the conference. That's very cool to look at, thanks for that!

re: Richmond

How many of these schools had the name they have now when they started playing? I know a number of A10 schools had entirely different institutional names at one time or another.

VCU started their program when they combined from two other schools (I think they use the founding date of one of those, a medical division, as their official start date), URI used to be an agricultural school and supposedly that's where the Rams mascot comes from. I don't entirely get that, as rams aren't super useful in agriculture as I understand it. Most of them had their current name when their basketball team started.

As we all know, Bona's used to be St. Bonaventure's College, which is why the apostrophe is correct.

Founded name:

Butler: North Western Christian University
Charlotte: Charlotte Center of the University of North Carolina , Charlotte College
Dayton: St. Mary's School for Boys (can't believe this isn't used by more Xavier fans)
Duquesne: Pittsburgh Catholic College of the Holy Ghost
Fordham: St. John's College
GW: The Columbian College in the District of Columbia
UMass: Massachusetts Agricultural College
URI: Rhode Island College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts
VCU: Medical College of Virginia and Richmond Professional Institute
Xavier: The Athenaeum, St. Xavier College

Temple, Richmond, La Salle, St. Joe's, Bona's and Saint Louis just changed from college (academy for SLU) to university.
