In a brief ceremony, local politicians and long time friends spoke of Hundley's accomplishments and shared stories of his influence and exploits. During the proceedings, Hundley rose several times to accept honors and the acclaim of the crowd gathered to watch the event. It was an honor long overdue, and one that was clearly appreciated by the WVU Hall of Famer, who is one of only two Mountaineers basketball players to have his number retired. He averaged 24.5 points and 10.6 rebounds for the Mountaineers, was a two-time All-American and the No. 1 overall pick in the 1957 NBA Draft.
