Two members of the Manchester University 1994-95 men’s basketball team that went to the NCAA Division III national championship game are returning to campus Sept. 13 for special induction into the Manchester University Athletic Hall of Fame.  Kyle Hupfer and Brad Knoy will join their coach, Steve Alford, in the Hall of Fame. Alford, now head coach of the UCLA Bruins men’s basketball team, was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2000. Alford is receiving the University’s Distinguished Honor Award in an earlier ceremony Sept. 13.  All three will be honored during halftime of the football game against Buffalo State.

The Hall of Fame luncheon, open to the public, begins at 11 a.m. upstairs in the Jo Young Switzer Center at the North Manchester campus. Pre-registration is available online. Meal cost is $25 for adults, $12.50 for children ages 6-12 and free for children 5 years old and younger.

Hupfer, a member of the Class of 1995, is a two-time all-Indiana Collegiate Athletic Conference selection. He played a key role in the amazing run of the Alford-led Spartans in the early 1990s.
