The LSU Board of Supervisors, after much deliberation before & during Friday’s meeting, officially passed the motion to name the court inside the Pete Maravich Assembly Center: “Dale Brown Court.”

The proposal passed on a 12-3 vote.

Questions were raised about possibly adding Sue Gunter’s name to the court, along with Dale Brown, in a show of equality, but that proposition was eventually opposed.

Several speakers appeared before the Board to urge them to approve Brown’s name gracing the court, and the meeting even included letters from Shaquille O’Neal and Bob Costas.
