An Evening With Bailey Howell

Tickets for An Evening with Bailey Howell Thursday October 7, 2004 at the Marriott Hotel in Jackson, MS are now on sale at the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame & Museum.

Proceeds from the event will help establish the Bailey Howell Award, which will be awarded annually to Mississippi's top college basketball player as determined by sports journalists throughout the state. The award will be administered by the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame & Museum.

Howell, a former two-time All-American at Mississippi State and six-time NBA All-Star with Detroit, Baltimore and Boston, is the only male player with Mississippi connections to be inducted in the National Basketball Hall of Fame. He still holds 11 school records.

Howell will speak along with long-time friend Joe Dean, Sr, the former athletic director at LSU and one of the most of the recognizable broadcasters in the country with his saying "String music!"
