His arrival brought about instant success to SWOSU’s men’s basketball program. Teaming with Archie McGill, the two provided a potent one-two scoring punch.

The Bulldogs finished 1966 with a 23-5 mark and were eliminated in the conference finals by the Al Tucker-led Oklahoma Baptist University Bioson.
