Basketball Great Jerry West to Visit West Virginia

February 07, 2002

Basketball legend and West Virginia native Jerry West will be the featured speaker at a University of Charleston fundraising event at 7:00 p.m, Tuesday, March 12, at the Charleston Civic Center.  

West’s presentation will focus on education, family values, and the NBA. West rose to basketball stardom as a member of the Los Angeles Lakers where he still holds the all-time leading scorer record. He was a 14-time NBA All-Star (All-Star MVP in 1972), the 1969 NBA Finals MVP, a member of the Basketball Hall of Fame, and one of the 50 greatest players in NBA history. West recently retired from the Los Angeles Lakers franchise as Executive Vice President for Basketball Operations.
