A pair of Virginia Union University birthdays to celebrate today! First, Happy Birthday to the winningest college basketball coach in state history, and 2010 Virginia Sports Hall of Fame inductee, Dave Robbins. In 30-seasons at the helm of the Virginia Union University Men's Basketball, Robbins compiled a 713-194 record, including 3 NCAA Division II National Championships and 13 CIAA championships.
During his tenure at VUU, Robbins produced four Division II players of the year, eight Consensus first team All-Americans and five NBA players; including 2015 VSHF inductee, Ben Wallace, who is also a recipient of today's birthday wishes!
Wallace averaged 13.4 points per game and 10 rebounds per game, while at VUU. After going undrafted, Wallace would eventually find his way to the Detroit Pistons where he would go on to become a 4-time NBA All-Star, 4-time Defensive Player of the Year, and 5-time All-NBA First Team Defense. Wallace would also help lead the Pistons to the 2004 NBA Championship. In 17-seasons, Wallace totaled 6,254 points, 10,482 rebounds and 2,137 blocks. ... See MoreSee Less
