Just in time for March Madness, the Martha Blakeney Hodges Special Collections and University Archives presents “Spartan Evolution: A History of Basketball on the UNCG Campus from the 1890s to Today.” This exhibit is housed next to the reference desk on the main level of Jackson Library, and will run through April. Featuring images ranging from the women of the Athletic Association in 1900 to current head coaches Wes Miller and Wendy Palmer, this exhibit highlights key events and people in the development of intramural and intercollegiate basketball on campus.
An online exhibit also features a number of images used in the exhibit: http://library.uncg.edu/collection/exhibits/History_of_Basketball_at_UNCG.aspx.
And, stay tuned to Spartan Stories! The March 4th post will also delve deeper into UNCG basketball history.
