Even before he took Maryland to its first Final Four in 2001 and led the Terps to their only national championship the following season, Gary Williams had long been a respected member of the college coaching fraternity. On Monday, that opinion was validated when Williams was selected to join the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. Williams, 69, will be inducted along with longtime NBA commissioner David Stern, former NBA stars Alonzo Mourning and Mitch Richmond as well as former Arkansas coach Nolan Richardson and former Indiana Pacers coach and commentator Bob “Slick” Leonard in Springfield, Mass., in August.

But now the date of the induction, having already been altered once, is up in the air now that Johnson has come out of retirement, again.His last regular season was 1990-91, so he should have been part of the class of '97 in Springfield, Mass., since players must skip five elections before they go on the ballot.Then he played in the 1991-92 All-Star Game and in the 1992 Olympics.

HE STOOD 5 feet 11 inches tall, hardly a giant by modern basketball standards -- or even by the vagabond standards of the 1940s. Yet Harry "Buddy" Jeannette was a giant in his time, and a fabled part of Baltimore's professional basketball history.Buddy Jeannette died Wednesday at age 80. Many younger sports fans won't recognize the name. But older basketball aficionados know what he did for the Baltimore Bullets. He was star player, coach and general manager for the team in three leagues.

COLLEGE PARK - Tom McMillen could hardly have been a more highly touted recruit. "The best high school player in America," read Sports Illustrated's headline in bold lettering on a 1970 cover depicting the 6-foot-11 Mansfield (Pa.) basketball star. It was a lot to live up to - high school athletes were not normally hyped the way they are today - but McMillen didn't disappoint Maryland or its coach, Lefty Driesell. He averaged 21 points and 10 rebounds in his Terps career. On Sunday, McMillen - a Rhodes Scholar who went on to play in the NBA and serve in the U.S. House of Representatives - will be among the new inductees into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame in Kansas City, Mo. "I'm really proud of him," said Driesell.

Eckman deserves Hall nodThere was a glaring omission to the list of candidates for the Basketball Hall of Fame. The missing person is Charley Eckman, who was truly unique and whose feats in basketball were legendary and can never be duplicated.Many of your readers will remember Charley as a sportscaster on WCBM and WFBR. Some realize that Charley was the Babe Ruth of basketball referees, rated first or second in college and the pro ranks in the 1950s. He is the only person who ever refereed and coached in the NBA. He won two NBA divisional championships and tied for a third.
