How an A&T-High Point basketball rivalry was born inside the Qubein Center

BOB SUTTON Special to the News & Record

HIGH POINT – N.C. A&T showed up at High Point’s fancy new basketball home – that’s just the generic description of the glitzy on-campus arena – without a blemish in the Big South Conference.

The Aggies left wondering if perhaps they haven’t uncovered a new rival.

Walking into the Qubein Center on Saturday night might have seemed like a fantasy world for the Aggies, who had become the first team in the conference to reach the three-win mark earlier in the week.

The commission is likely to announce its decision in late spring or summer.

Health & Wellness Building to be Named in Honor of William Allen Hudgins

October 27, 2021

The Alamo Colleges District Board voted on Wednesday, October 27, 2021, to name the new St. Philip’s College Health & Wellness Building in honor of William Allen Hudgins who contributed nearly 40 years of service to St. Philip’s College and his community.

Hudgins was the first basketball coach at St. Philip’s College where he served as a role model to young men for 18 years. As a coach, he encouraged high academic standards while overseeing the mental health, growth, and development of team members. He was committed to strengthening the development of children of color in the community. Hudgins (affectionately known as “Coach” and “Meatboy”) is prominently displayed as a part of the St. Philip’s College Historical Legacy Wall located in the Bowden Center on the Third Floor of the Sutton Learning Center.


When he finished high school, he was offered an athletic scholarship to Virginia State University but opted to take a work-study scholarship at Hampton Institute in 1935. It was at Hampton Institute that he became a legendary “Hampton Pirate” playing for the great coaches during that time, Gideon “Gid” Smith, Charles H. Williams (founder of the CIAA), and Herman “Buck” Neilson. Hudgins was considered one of the premier athletes earning the title “3-LETTER MAN” for his athletic success in football, basketball, and track. When he finished Hampton Institute in 1940, he earned a Master's Degree from the University of Pennsylvania and was also the basketball coach at Cambridge High School in Baltimore, Maryland.
