1965 Springfield College men's basketball team to be inducted into New England Basketball Hall of Fame
Western Mass. people are part of several categories that make up the large Class of 2013. Dave Hixon, a 36-year coach and former player at Amherst College, will be inducted in a special “icons of the game” category. He’s already enshrined as a coach, along with his father, Andover High School coaching legend Will Hixon. The “special honorees” category will salute Roland “Fan” Gaudette, whose long coaching resume includes tours at the University of Massachusetts as an assistant coach, and several Pioneer Valley high schools as a head coach of both boys and girls basketball.
