His .472 percentage on field goal attempts set another Miami record. In addition to being a strong rebounder, he has a good one-hand shot from the side of the floor. He is outstanding as a team man. His high school coach- John Ward.1955-1956Sophomore forward, led the freshman squad in scoring a year ago. He possesses wonderful timing on his shots. He's a very good rebounder and gets up high off the floor, making him an excellent tip-in artist. Shoots a very accurate one handshot.
