Rusty Parker - Men's Basketball - University of Miami Athletics

Senior forward from Dayton Beach, Fla. … Physical Education … Nickname, Rusty … Age 22 … Ht. 6-6 … Wt. 210 … Letters earned, 2 … Parker is the most experienced player on the squad … He has averaged 13 points and nearly nine rebounds per game over two campaigns. An injury benched Rusty last season for three games, and knocked him off stride in other games … The Floridian is excellent on the drive-in and sparkles at grabbing the sharp pass for the fast under-the-basket shot … He is also dangerous from the corners … His size and aggressiveness makes his presence felt in the rebounding tussles.

As a Junior (1966-67)

Last year, he topped 20 points twice.

As a Sophomore (1965-66)

Parker’s best scoring game was 32 points at Houston in his sophomore year when he had five games 20 points or better … A 20-point rebound total against Florida Southern is Rusty’s high in that department.

High School

In high school at Mainland, the Hurricane forward played football and baseball as well as basketball … He plans to go into physical education and teach retarded children following graduation … Hunting and fishing are his hobbies. High school coach – Joe Piggotte.
