McNeese renames its basketball court in honor of Joe Dumars

LAKE CHARLES, La. (AP) — McNeese has renamed its basketball court for Basketball Hall of Famer Joe Dumars, the two-time NBA champion player who scored a record 2,607 points in his four seasons at the school. Joe Dumars Court will be unveiled Thursday on “Joe Dumars Day.” The Detroit Pistons chose Dumars with the 18th pick in the 1985 NBA draft. He spent his entire NBA playing career with the Pistons, becoming an All-Star six times and winning two titles. He went into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2006, and is now executive vice president and head of basketball operations for the NBA.
