The C Spire Howell and C Spire Gillom Trophies
Posted on: April 11,2019
The C Spire Howell and C Spire Gillom Trophies are a part of the C Spire Outstanding Award Series. Presented each year to the state’s top men’s and women’s college basketball players, the awards are named in honor of our Mississippi Sports Hall of Famers Bailey Howell and Peggie Gillom Granderson.
Howell was an outstanding player at Mississippi State and in the NBA. He is a member of the Naismith (International) Basketball Hall of Fame. Gillom was an All-American at Ole Miss, played professionally and has coached in both college basketball, in the WNBA and in the Olympics.
The awards are presented in early March each year. See the photo gallery below featuring the previous winners of the awards.
