Marshall University is a public research university in Huntington, West Virginia. It was founded in 1837 and is named after John Marshall, the fourth Chief Justice of the United States; the university is composed of nine undergraduate colleges: Lewis College of Business, College of Education and Professional Development, College of Arts and Media, College of Health Professions, Honors College, College of Information Technology and Engineering, College of Liberal Arts, College of Science, University College. The forensic science graduate program is one of nearly twenty post-graduate-level academic programs in the United States accredited by the American Academy of Forensic Sciences; the university's digital forensics program is the first program in the world to receive accreditation in digital forensics from the Forensic Science Education Programs Accreditation Commission. The Lewis College of Business is amongst only 1% of global business schools to have achieved dual AACSB accreditation in Business and Accounting.
Marshall University has a non-residential branch campus, focused on graduate education, in South Charleston, the Marshall University - South Charleston Campus, which offers classes throughout the southern half of the state, including at the Erma Byrd Higher Education Center in Beckley. It offers undergraduate courses, under three "centers", the Southern Mountain Center, operating on the campuses of the Southern West Virginia Community College in Logan and Williamson and at the YMCA in Gilbert. Marshall University operates the Robert C. Byrd Institute, with operations on both the Huntington and South Charleston campuses, as well as in Fairmont, West Virginia; the institute's goal is the transfer of technology from the academic departments to private industry to support job development in the region. Marshall University was founded in 1837 as a private subscription school by residents of Guyandotte and the surrounding area; the landmark Old Main, which now serves as the primary administrative building for the university, was built on land known as Maple Grove, at the time the home of the Mount Hebron Church in what was the state of Virginia.
John Laidley, a local attorney, hosted the meeting which led to the founding of Marshall Academy, named after Laidley's friend, the eminent John Marshall who had served as the fourth Chief Justice of the United States from January 1801 to July 1835. On March 30, 1838, the institution was formally dedicated by the Virginia General Assembly as Marshall Academy. In 1858, the Virginia General Assembly changed the name to Marshall College, but this change still did not reflect its status as a true college; the Civil War closed the financially challenged school for much of the 1860s. On June 20, 1863, Cabell County, was one of the 50 counties separated from Virginia at the height of the American Civil War to form the State of West Virginia, the college fell within the new state. In 1867, the West Virginia Legislature resurrected the institution as a teacher training facility and renamed it State Normal School of Marshall College; this began the history of the college as a state-supported post-secondary institution.
With the exception of the Old Main building, expansion of the facilities and the college itself did not begin until 1907, when the West Virginia Board of Regents changed the title of the presiding officer from "principal" to "president" and allowed the creation of new college-level departments. At that time, enrollment surpassed 1,000 students; the school began offering four-year degrees for the first time in 1920. In 1937, the college suffered through a devastating flooding by the Ohio River. Numerous structures, such as Northcott Hall and the James E. Morrow Library were extensively flooded. Much of Huntington was heavily damaged, as a result, a floodwall was constructed around much of the town to prevent future occurrences; the West Virginia Board of Education authorized Marshall College in 1938 to offer the master's degree in six programs: chemistry, history, political science and sociology, as the institution underwent another expansion. In that year the school was accredited as a "university level institution".
Further expansion accelerated after World War II. In 1960, John F. Kennedy spoke at the college during his cross-country campaign for the presidency. On March 2, 1961, West Virginia Legislature elevated Marshall to university status, the legislation was signed by Governor W. W. Barron; the student newspaper, The Parthenon, prepared two front pages for the day, depending on the outcome of the legislature's vote. In 1961, WMUL-FM began operations as the first public radio station in West Virginia; the station, which began in the Science Building at 10 watts of power, now broadcasts from the Communications Building with 1,400 watts. In 1969, the university's athletic program, facing a number of scandals, fired both its football and basketball coaches and was suspended from the Mid-American Conference and from the National Collegiate Athletic Association; the university rebuilt its athletic program back to respectability, in 1977, the university joined the Southern Conference. On the evening of November 14, 1970, the Thunderin

Elvin Ernest Hayes is an American retired professional basketball player and radio analyst for his alma-mater Houston Cougars. He is a member of the NBA's 50th Anniversary All-Time Team, an inductee in the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame. A quiet, introverted youth, Hayes first picked up a basketball in eighth grade, by accident, he was sent to the principal's office. But another teacher, Reverend Calvin, said he was welcome in his class. Although the youngster showed no inclination for any sports, Calvin thought he would benefit by playing basketball and put him on the school team. Hayes was so clumsy, that he evoked laughter with his awkward attempts at shooting and dribbling, but young Hayes was determined to improve, during the summers he practiced long hours. As a 6'5" ninth grader he was a benchwarmer on the junior varsity squad at Britton High School when he became determined to crack the starting lineup. "I was too weak to shoot the turnaround then", Hayes recalled, "so all summer long I shot with a small rubber ball at a basket in my yard.
My development was overnight." In Hayes's senior year, 1963–64, he led Britton to the state championship, averaging 35 points during the regular season. In the championship game he picked up 20 rebounds. Hayes and Don Chaney were the University of Houston's first Black American basketball players in 1966. In 1966, Hayes led the Cougars into the Western Regional semi-finals of the 1966 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament before losing to the Pac-8 champion Oregon State Beavers. In 1967, he led the Cougars to the Final Four of the 1967 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament, he would attempt 31 field goals, score 25 points and 24 rebounds in a 73-58 semi-final loss to the eventual champion UCLA Bruins featuring Lew Alcindor. His rebounding total is second to Bill Russell's Final Four record of 27. On January 20, 1968, the Big E and the Houston Cougars faced Lew and the UCLA Bruins in the first-ever nationally televised regular season college basketball game. In front of a record 52,693 fans at the Houston Astrodome, Hayes scored 39 points and had 15 rebounds while limiting Alcindor to just 15 points as Houston beat UCLA 71–69 to snap the Bruins' 47-game winning streak in what has been called the "Game of the Century".
That game helped. One month on February 10, he grabbed a career-high 37 rebounds in a game against Centenary. In the rematch to the "Game of the Century", Hayes faced Alcindor and UCLA in the 1968 NCAA Men's Division I Basketball Tournament at the Los Angeles Memorial Sports Arena. UCLA coach John Wooden had the Bruins play a'triangle and two" zone defense with Alcindor playing behind Hayes and Lynn Shackleford fronting him, he was held to 10 points, losing to the Bruins 101-69 in the semi-final game. Hayes led Houston in scoring. For his college career, Hayes averaged 17.2 rebounds per game. He has the most rebounds in NCAA tournament history at 222. While a student at Houston, Hayes was initiated into the Alpha Nu Omega Chapter of the Iota Phi Theta Fraternity. With his departure from college Hayes was selected as the first overall selection in both the 1968 NBA draft and 1968 ABA draft, he was taken by the Houston Mavericks, respectively. Hayes joined the NBA with the San Diego Rockets in 1968 and went on to lead the NBA in scoring with 28.4 points per game, averaged 17.1 rebounds per game, was named to the NBA All-Rookie Team.
Hayes' scoring average is the fifth best all-time for a rookie, he remains the last rookie to lead the NBA in scoring average. He scored a career-high 54 points against the Detroit Pistons on November 11, 1968. In Hayes' second season, he led the NBA in rebounding, becoming the first player other than Bill Russell or Wilt Chamberlain to lead the category since 1957. In Hayes' third season, 1970–71, he scored a career best 28.7 points per game. In 1971, the Rockets moved to Houston. Hayes was acquired by the Baltimore Bullets from the Rockets for Jack Marin on June 23, 1972, he teamed with Hall-Of-Famer Wes Unseld to form a dominating frontcourt combination. The 18.1 rebounds per game Hayes averaged in 1974 is the third highest rebounding average of any NBA player since Wilt Chamberlain retired in 1973. Hayes and Unseld led the Washington Bullets to three NBA Finals, an NBA title over the Seattle SuperSonics in 1978. During the Bullets' championship season, he averaged 21.8 points and 12.1 rebounds per game in 21 playoff games.
Hayes set an NBA Finals record for most offensive rebounds in a game, in a May 27, 1979 game against the SuperSonics. The Chicago Bulls' Dennis Rodman would tie this record twice, both games coming in the 1996 NBA Finals against the SuperSonics. Desiring to finish his playing career in Texas and preferably Houston, Hayes was sent back to the Rockets for second-round draft picks in 1981 and 1983 on June 8, 1981; the "Big E" closed out his career with the Rockets in 1984. His final season was marked with some controversy.
1971 NBA draft
The 1971 NBA draft was the 25th annual draft of the National Basketball Association. The draft was held on March 30, 1971 before the 1971 -- 72 season. In this draft, 17 NBA teams took turns selecting amateur U. S. college basketball players and other eligible players, including international players. A player who had finished his four-year college eligibility was eligible for selection. If a player left college early, he would not be eligible for selection until his college class graduated; the first two picks in the draft belonged to the teams that finished last in each conference, with the order determined by a coin flip. The Cleveland Cavaliers won the coin flip and were awarded the first overall pick, while the Portland Trail Blazers were awarded the second pick; the remaining first-round picks and the subsequent rounds were assigned to teams in reverse order of their win–loss record in the previous season. Prior to the start of the season, the San Diego Rockets and the San Francisco Warriors relocated to Houston and Oakland, became the Houston Rockets and Golden State Warriors respectively.
The draft consisted of 19 rounds comprising the selection of 237 players. The league hosted a supplemental hardship draft on September 20, 1971, for college underclassmen who wish to join the league. Austin Carr from the University of Notre Dame was selected first overall by the Cleveland Cavaliers. Sidney Wicks from the University of California, Los Angeles, who went on to win the Rookie of the Year Award in his first season, was selected second by the Portland Trail Blazers. Spencer Haywood, the 30th pick, Randy Smith, the 104th pick, were selected to both the All-NBA Team and the All-Star Game.

Spencer Haywood was selected in the second round by the Buffalo Braves although he played in the NBA with the Seattle SuperSonics in the previous season, he left college basketball in 1969 with two years remaining in his college eligibility. At that time, the NBA prohibited the drafting or signing of a player before his college class had graduated.
He played in the ABA with the Denver Rockets for a season before controversially signed by the Sonics. The league and the other NBA teams opposed the move and argued Haywood should be prohibited to join and play with the Sonics; this led to a court case between the NBA against the Haywood. He argued that he should be allowed to play because he was a "hardship case", due to his position as the sole wage earner in his family, he won the case and was allowed to play late in the 1970–71 season. This led to the NBA allowing college underclassmen to enter the draft provided they could give evidence of "hardship". With the existing rules, Haywood was eligible for this year's draft, when his college class graduated; the Braves used one of their three second-round picks to select him, hoping that they would win the rights to sign him. However, he never played for the Braves; the following list includes other draft picks.
