Basketball Stars From Black Colleges

Willis Reed, a two-time NBA champion and former MVP, was one of many basketball legends who dribbled on HBCU courts. Reed attended Grambling State before playing for the New York Knicks from 1964 to 1974. Bobby Dandridge of Norfolk State also played for HBCUs because few colleges recruited Blacks.  (Photo: AP Photo/File)
