FAYETTEVILLE--Nolan Richardson sat down with the Razorback Nation on the eve of his induction into the Naismith Hall of Fame to discuss what landed him in such prestigious company.

He addressed his impact on the game of college basketball during a 40 year career as a head coach and the success of his efforts to open the door from more black head coaches in the south.

Richardson also discussed the role that his "granny" played in his life and the impact she ended up having indirectly on the sport of college basketball.
