At halftime of the men's game Sunday afternoon, a court dedication ceremony was held at the brand new Cregger Center for the Hall of Fame coach.

Moir was the head coach of the Maroons from 1967 to 1973, and compiled a record of 133-44.

During his time at Roanoke, he led the Maroons to five conference championships, four NCAA Tournament appearances and a national championship in 1972.

Family, friends and former players were all on-hand for the ceremony at the impressive new facility on campus.

"This is just an incredible facility and I'm proud to be a part of it. I had some great players. My first signee is here. He made All-American-- Frankie Allen and Hal Johnson is here. He was also an All- American and played on the National Championship team. This means a great deal to me and my family. I'm very honored to have my name on the court and was very fortunate to have an opportunity to coach at Roanoke College," Moir said.
