(WTNH)–The list is impressive. The nominees for induction into the Class of 2017 Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield includes former Wilbur Cross head coach Bob Saulsbury.
What a legendary run he had coaching the Governors over 28 years. He won nine state titles, nearly 500 games, and one season, his team was ranked No. 1 in the country.
If the 87-year-old gets selected to the list of finalists and eventually the Hall, it will be the ultimate compliment for a man who almost didn’t take the head coaching job at Cross.
