About the American Basketball Hall of Fame

Founded by LaMont “ShowBoat” Robinson, the American Basketball Hall of Fame has a rich legacy of its own. Robinson, who himself has a notable career in basketball, spanning 28 years from 1987 to 2015, has been long associated with barnstorming basketball. His contribution to the sports world garnered him several nominations to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. Eventually, he was inducted into the American Basketball Hall of Fame Class of 2019.

Over the years, the American Basketball Hall of Fame has honoured many men and women who have shown outstanding skills and achievements in basketball. This includes high school legends, playground hoopsters, small college players, international players, barnstorming players and teams, amongst many others. To date, the American Basketball Hall of Fame has inducted 78 players, coaches, and contributors.

Continuing the Legacy

With Winthrop Women’s Basketball and Big South Conference’s indisputable support, Randall-Lay continues to shape the future of women’s basketball, serving as an inspiration for many upcoming athletes. Her induction into the American Basketball Hall of Fame is a testament to her remarkable journey in the sphere of basketball, spotlighting the influence and impactful role that she continues to have in this beloved sport.
