The Ah Chew Goo thread got me thinking... Bevo Francis
Possibly the greatest college player ever, two 110+ games (116 and 113) in college, 50.1ppg in 1953 (NCAA record, but they knocked it down to 48.3, because some of the games were against JC's, including the 116 performance), 48ppg in 1954. Was drafted by Philly, but opted not to play. This all from a 6'9" jump shooter.
Sorry if someone has brought up Bevo before, Goo thread gave me a flashback.
"Francis convinced me. He was a great player. He was an excellent shooter from the floor and was big enough to control the boards. And don’t overlook his playing companions. They were an excellent college team. Bevo was to Rio Grande what Larry Bird was to Indiana State later." - Tony Hinkle, Hall of Fame former Coach, Butler University. (Wikipedia)
