On this day, 75 years ago, a legend was born.

On July 25, LSU will unveil the statue of Pete Maravich on the campus where he dazzled crowds and changed the game of basketball forever. ?? lsul.su/3tVKmue

LSU will unveil a statue of Pete Maravich, the all-time leading scorer in NCAA Division I basketball history, on Monday, July 25, the department announced Wednesday.

Approved unanimously by the LSU Board of Supervisors in 2016, the statue will stand alongside existing likenesses of Hall of Famers Shaquille O’Neal and Bob Pettit on the north side of the Pete Maravich Assembly Center.

The statue will be revealed at 6 p.m., with a private reception to take place afterward inside the PMAC.

Wasn’t this always a problem because he didn’t graduate? I guess that was waived?

Well they did name the basketball stadium after him, think that’s a little better than a statue

You’re joking right? I mean the entire damn building is named after him. You can’t put the fricking address in for Shaq’s statue and get there on GPS like you can the fricking PMAC. I bet your dumbass thought PMAC was a brand of Mac and Cheese.
