Smith among 21 in new UB Hall


April 15, 2004|By Bill Free | Bill Free,SUN STAFF

Ron Smith said he vividly remembers his basketball days at the University of Baltimore, when he was playing in front of such crowds as the capacity 5,200 at the Towson Center in 1977.

"It seems like just yesterday," he said of a 68-65 loss to the Tigers in one of five games between the schools that were decided by a total of 14 points that season.

His stroll down memory lane was launched by the University of Baltimore's decision to establish an Athletic Hall of Fame, with Smith to be honored May 8 in the inaugural class of 19 athletes and two coaches.

Joining Smith in the Hall of Fame will be fellow basketball players Isiah "Bunny" Wilson and Jack Bychich; baseball players Leo "Bo" Eibner, Ronald Mather and Kenneth Massimini; golfers Otto Greiner, Edward Johnston, and Marvin "Hank" Majewski; lacrosse players Randy Walker, Paul Loewer, Timothy Albrecht and Dale Rothe; soccer players Larry Surock, George Barger, Henry "Hank" Kazmierski and Dale Rothe, and wrestlers Sidney Goldin, Fred Frommelt and Al Doory.

The two coaches are Dick Edell and the late Al Barthelme.
