METRO/PREP ROUNDUP: Lovellette joins National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame

Garfield graduate and Kansas legend Clyde Lovellette was among a 10-man class inducted Sunday into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame.

Lovellette, already a member of the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass., is the only player in basketball history to win championships at the AAU, NCAA, NBA and Olympic level. He’s also the only player to lead the nation in scoring on a national championship team, which he did in 1952, averaging 28.6 points per game for coach Phog Allen’s team. He was Most Outstanding Player of the Final Four for the Jayhawks’ championship team.

The 6-foot-9 Lovellette, an outstanding outside shooting in addition to an inside force, led the Big Seven Conference in scoring three times while at Kansas. Ironically the only championship he didn’t get was at Garfield; the unbeaten Purple Eagles lost the state championship game in 1947 to Shelbyville despite Lovellette’s 25 points.

The National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame is a relatively new facility, part of the College Basketball Experience at Kansas City. The CBE Hall of Fame Classic began there Monday with Saint Louis playing Texas A&M and Washington State meeting Kansas, with the third-place and championship games tonight.

Others inducted with Lovellette were Patrick Ewing of Georgetown, Phil Ford of North Carolina, Kenny Sailors of Wyoming, Earl Monroe of Winston-Salem State, Willis Reed of Grambling, coaches Joe B. Hall of Kentucky and Dave Robbins of Virginia Union, and contributors Jim Host and Joe Dean.
