No one dominated college basketball like Clyde Lovellette did in 1952. He is still the only athlete to win the national collegiate scoring title the same year his team (Kensas) won the NCAA title. And he broke the existing NCAA tournament scoring record by 58 points! That's right, 58 points. He also set a new single tournament game record. Moreover, he was the leading scorer on the 1952 gold medal winning U.S. Olympic team. The only reason he was the 10th pick of the NBA draft (rather than the first pick) in 1952 was because NBA teams knew he wanted to retain his amateur standing to play in the Olympics. He played on three NBA championship teams and one National Industrial League championship team. Terre Haute Garfield, his high school, reached the final game of the Indiana High School basketball tournament undefeated.
