    The old commissioner of the sun belt when JD's rams were part of the league. He was great! He was the first commissioner to introduce the 3 pt line to conference play!

    He passed away at 91 years old.

    He looked out for teams in the Sun Belt, especially when we made the NCAAs. Our games were located within a reasonable distance. Charlotte and Greensboro were great trips. Helped by his guidance back then.

    He was also Chairman of the NCAA Selection Committee back then.

    As far as I know from my younger days, and from what some of the older Fans have told me... Vic Bubas was a heck of a Basketball Man. He was a Player at the NCAA Level, and he really did build something amazing, with the old Sun Belt Conference. RIP, indeed.

    RIP to a true college basketball icon. He was instrumental in our early development and successes. Cannot underestimate his affect on our programs early days. Brings back a lot of memories. Good man for all accounts
