Richardson To Be Honored by Razorback Alumni

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (AP) - Nolan Richardson will receive the

Honorary Alumni Award from the Black Alumni Society of the Arkansas

Alumni Association.

The former Arkansas basketball coach will be the featured guest

at the BAS reunion April 16-19. His 1994 national championship

team, honored recently by the university at a basketball game, will

receive special recognition that weekend.

Former Arkansas basketball player Ronnie Brewer is also being

recognized. He'll receive the Community Service Award.

Richardson was fired in 2002 and later lost a discrimination

lawsuit against the school, but relations have thawed recently, and

Richardson was welcomed back for the 1994 team's ceremony about

three weeks ago.
