SPECIAL GUEST/KEY NOTE SPEAKER: Coach Dave Robbins
Dave Robbins, the legendary men’s basketball coach at Virginia Union University for 30 years, was inducted into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame on November 18, 2012 in Kansas City, Missouri. Robbins was inducted along with former University of Kentucky coach Joe B. Hall, as well as players Patrick Ewing of Georgetown, Earl Monroe of Winston-Salem State, Clyde Lovellette of Kansas, Phil Ford of North Carolina, Kenny Sailors of Wyoming and Willis Reed of Grambling. Jim Host and Joe Dean were also be inducted as contributors.
As the first white coach in the history of the Central Intercollegiate Athletic Association (CIAA), which consists of historically black colleges and universities, Robbins’ ascension to collegiate coaching in 1978 drew much attention. He guided the Panthers to their first NCAA Division II Championship in 1980 and followed that up with two more – in 1992 and 2005. Coach Robbins also captured 14 CIAA Titles throughout his career with VUU. Robbins’ teams had a remarkable won-lost record of 713-194, for a winning percentage of .786 over his 30 seasons. Most notable for our event, Robbins was also the head basketball coach at Thomas Jefferson High School from 1971-1977. Under Coach Robbins, the Vikings won the Virginia State Championship in 1975.
