Having already done some searches to no avail, can anyone tell me if Gardner-Webb was a junior college when Gilmore played there?

Yes! And for some more additional CBB trivia, one of Gilmore's teammates at GW was a Queens, NYC Irish Catholic kid named Kevin Cantwell. Gilmore transferred to Jacksonville. Cantwell transferred to UNC-A where he met and married a NC girl. Both of those transfers would go on to affect high school and collegiate basketball in North and South Carolina and the south in any number of ways since.

Yes it was. Changed to 4 year shortly after he left for Jacksonville.

Artis was a JuCo player at GW--they were not yet a 4 year school at the time- He was coached by Eddie Holbrook who later went on to be the head coach at Furman-GW has a strong legacy in basketball through the years. I once roomed with Eddie Lee Wilkins one summer. He played for many years in the NBA.

Actually that's where the topic came up. One of my former African-American football players made a post about Artis Gilmore.

Any need for the excessive adjectives?

There might be, I might be missing some context.

My brother played at Lee’s-McRae at the same time and I remember going to a game in Boiling Springs and seeing him play there
