Charleston, WV – The University of Charleston Athletic Network (UCAN) will hold its annual fundraising banquet Monday, September 25, in the UC Ballroom. Keynote speaker will be Dave Robinson, ‘The Admiral’.

Robinson is a Hall of Fame basketball player and Olympic champion. In his first six NBA seasons he won Rookie of the Year, a league MVP award and multiple Defensive Player of the Year awards.
