On this date in 1990, the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame opened its new museum in New Castle amid much hoopla. With a legend in every corner and special guests from Washington, D.C. to Hollywood, an estimated 3,000 people helped christen the museum, which had been based in Indianapolis since its inception in 1962. A veritable “who’s who” of state and national political office holders were there, including U.S. Vice President Dan Quayle, Gov. Evan Bayh, U.S. Sens. Dan Coats and Richard Lugar, U.S. Rep. Phil Sharp, Angelo Pizzo and David Anspaugh, director and producer of the hit movie “Hoosiers, NBA legend Oscar Robertson, all-time Indiana basketball scoring champion Damon Bailey; and New Castle Mr. Basketballs Kent Benson (1973) and Steve Alford (1983).
