Hot Rod doc premieres at Met

MORGANTOWN — “The Untold Story of Hot Rod Hundley” will premiere Friday at the Metropolitan Theatre, 371 High St. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., screening at 7 p.m.
“Hot Rod” is a documentary chronicling the flamboyance of basketball great and television broadcaster Rod Hundley.
A native of Charleston, Hundley played for WVU from 1954 to 1957. He became the No. 1 pick in the 1957 NBA draft. When Hundley’s party-till-you-drop lifestyle derailed his pro career, he dedicated himself to broadcasting.
The only former NBA player to be enshrined in the Basketball Hall of Fame as a play-by-play announcer, Hundley died in March 2015 of Alzheimers at 80.
