WWU hosts the 13th WWU Chuck Randall Classic on Nov. 14-15. The tournament is named after Chuck Randall, one of the legendary figures in the history of Western Athletics. Randall coached the Vikings for 18 seasons from 1963 to 1981 and posted a record of 275-186, received hall of fame honors from the National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics, WWU and Eastern Washington University. He was named the WWU men's Coach of the Century for 1900-99. Randall's best team was the 1971-72 squad that finished 26-4 and reached the national quarterfinals, winning conference and NAIA District 1 titles. The Vikings won their first 21 games, and took a memorable two-out-of-three district championship series over Eastern Washington, then won twice at nationals in Kansas City, Missouri, before falling. Randall was named NAIA Area I Coach of the Year. Off the court, Randall began the first summer basketball camp for children in the state and perhaps in the country during the 1960s and is recognized by many as the inventor of the Slam-Dunk Rim.
