New York University

Varsity Basketball

"We were one of the strongest teams in the country."

"NYU in those days was a powerhouse; we were one of the strongest teams in the country. Before the NCAA it was the NITs (National Invitation Tournament). We won the NIT three years in a row. I am going to throw names at you that most of the time only older people recognize, but I was on a team with Zack Sanders, Hap Harrison, Mal White, and Barry Kramer. We hold the distinction that all five of us who were on the starting team later on went to play in the NBA.

It wasn’t like today when they can play one year of basketball and the next year they go off to the NBA. You could only go into the NBA when your class graduated. I have a bachelor of science in business administration from NYU."
