KANSAS CITY, MO (AP) -- Georgetown great Patrick Ewing and North Carolina's Phil Ford lead a 10-member class that will be inducted into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame in November.

The class was announced Tuesday in Kansas City.

The two will be joined by former Kansas star Clyde Lovellette, Wyoming's Kenny Sailors, Grambling's Willis Reed and Winston-Salem State's Earl Monroe.

Also inducted will be Joe B. Hall, who followed Adolph Rupp as the coach of Kentucky, and Dave Robbins, who won more than 700 games at Virginia Union.

Businessmen Jim Host and Joe Dean will go in as contributors.

The induction ceremony is scheduled for Nov. 18 at the Midland Theatre in Kansas City. The following night, Kansas, Saint Louis, Texas A&M and Washington will play in the semifinals of the CBE Classic at the nearby Sprint Center.
