Hal Nunnally, 65, basketball coach

ASHLAND, Va. (AP) — Hal Nunnally, a basketball coach who became the winningest men’s coach in Randolph-Macon College history, died Nov. 10. He was 65.

A former student and basketball scorekeeper at the college, Mr. Nunnally was an assistant under longtime coach Paul Webb. When Mr. Webb left in 1975, Mr. Nunnally took over and guided the Yellow Jackets to a 431-232 record in 24 seasons.

In only his second season, Mr. Nunnally led Randolph-Macon to the NCAA Division III national championship game, in which they were beaten 71-62 by Tennessee-Chattanooga.

A Petersburg, Va., native, he led Randolph-Macon to 20 winning seasons, 10 with at least 20 victories and 10 NCAA tournament appearances.

On Oct. 30, Mr. Nunnally was inducted into the Randolph-Macon Athletic Hall of Fame, but he was unable to attend the ceremony because of declining health, the school said.
