After an effort to rename the court, the University of Arkansas board unanimously voted to name the Bud Walton Arena basketball court after Nolan Richardson.
The University of Arkansas System board unanimously approved a resolution that would name the basketball court at Bud Walton Arena after legendary coach Nolan Richardson.
The effort to rename the court gained traction after several people voiced support for it, even Craig O’Neill who named the movement “40 Minutes of Hell Yes.”
Richardson also helped the Hogs reach the Final Four on three separate occasions in the 90s.
He was elected to the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2014.
The board also passed a plan to establish a way to honor Eddie Sutton.
