Former Gardner-Webb coach Eddie Holbrook helped put the University on the intercollegiate athletics map by building an elite basketball program in the 1960s and 1970s. Now Gardner-Webb has put Holbrook’s name on the University’s basketball court in Paul Porter Arena to honor his accomplishments as a coach and mentor. The University honored the former coach and celebrated the naming of Eddie Holbrook Court, with a reception and a halftime program on Feb. 26 during the Runnin’ Bulldogs’ home game versus Charleston Southern.
