Eddie Sutton has come up for inclusion to the Basketball Hall of Fame four times. And four times he has been denied the vote. Monday was the latest snub that the former college coach at Creighton, Arkansas, Kentucky and Oklahoma State has had to endure.
Among those receiving the vote are Nolan Richardson, who like Sutton counts Arkansas as one of his coaching stops. Richardson took Arkansas to two Final Four's while in Fayetteville. He won the National Title in 1995 before stepping down in 2002. Richardson also coached at Tulsa and won a national title as a junior college coach.
