re: Richmond

Wow. Thanks, Wolf! I was just wondering if the inauguaral seasons listed above indicated the first season for each school as an overall entity or not. For instance, does Dayton include wins/losses/stats from its years as St. Mary's?

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.
Pretty sure we can count on it now, Wolf.

re: Richmond

FYI - while UMass officially started in 1900, we celebrated our 100th season of basketball in 2008-2009 thanks to the few years without fielding a team.

Richmond actually started as Dunlora Academy in 1830, was renamed Virginia Baptist Seminary in 1832, and finally became Richmond College in 1840. Westhampton College for women was added in 1914 when the school moved to its present in location, and in 1920 Richmond College, Westhampton College, and the law school were united under the new University of Richmond name. Richmond College (men) and Westhampton College (women) continue to exist today with separate student governments and traditions, although all classes and other activities have long been coed.

Interesting, thank you for the correction. Hobart and William Smith Colleges here in western NY has a semi-similar history, I think your degree is from one or the other depending on gender. Is this why campus is split in half by the lake, or is that just random?

Yes, the campus was originally split by the lake between genders. Where the Commons spans the lake now there was a bridge...with a gate that was locked each night.

Things have obviously come a long way since then. When I was there in the late '90s, classes, dining, etc. had long been coed, but dorms were essentially all single-sex with the men on one side of the lake and women on the other. (The exception was the upperclass apartments on what has now come to be called South Campus, which were mixed.) Just after I left they swapped some dorms so that men and women were on both sides, although the buildings themselves were still single sex. There are now several dorms that are themselves coed by suite.

Every undergrad student at Richmond is a member of two schools/colleges, an academic one and a residential one. The academic one would be Arts & Sciences, Business, or Leadership. On the residential side, men are members of Richmond College and women are members of Westhampton College.

Before the merger we were the Green Devils (in honor of our mother school William & Mary)

I didn't know that. Green with devilish envy. I like it.

Of course having horns on your head at the time of Shakespeare represented another very specific form of jealousy.

Spiders Announce TV Package With WTVR-TV6


The Richmond Spiders have partnered with WTVR-TV, the local CBS affiliate, to bring more Spider men's basketball telecasts to the Central Virginia viewing area. In addition to the games already scheduled for network and regional television, the Spiders and WTVR are adding five of the most attractive games to their TV schedule on Channel 6 and Digital Channel 6.3.

The Spiders have also added another national telecast to the slate, as the Tue. Dec. 4 game at Old Dominion is now scheduled to be carried by the NBC Sports Network. Tip-off is 7 p.m.

The WTVR schedule begins with a Sat. Dec. 29 home game airing on Channel 6, when Richmond welcomes a perennial NCAA team and longtime rival, Davidson, to the Robins Center for a 6 p.m. contest.
