Congrats to all 2019 inductees into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame, especially Ernie DiGregorio, a hometown hero here in Providence for his playing days as a Friar great. This new book is a tribute to the team your Friars thrilled the nation with by going all the way to the Final Four.

I have been trying to get ahold of someone regarding the Hall of Fame program and I cannot reach anyone. Is there a program that is given out to people that has greetings from their supporters such as their high school and college friends? I know when my brother was in the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame people and well wishers were able to put congratulations from different people in the program. Please advise on who I can talk to. Thank you.
