I played with Alton Lister at Woodrow Wilson under Coach Henson, I remember picking Lister up at his house over in South Dallas. James use to tell me to take him over to SMU and play pick up games to toughen him up. At a whopping 5'9", and white player and friend to the Lister's, I always felt a little overwhelmed in their home. Is the shelter story about James confirmed? hard to believe that his family would let that happen. James always seemed to have a good business sense. Can someone confirm? breaks my heart.

James was my roommate in 1969. An extraordinary human. Riley, I remember you, your Dad and that brown station wagon.

I really hated to here about James passing away. I played with him at Sam in the 1969-70 and 1970-71 seasons, my junior and senior years. In my senior year we finished in a three way tie for first place with Stephen F. Austin, and Howard Payne University, for the Lone Star Conf. Championship.
He was one heck of a ball player, and person. He still holds most of the scoring and rebounding records at Sam Houston, which will probably never be broken.

James Lister died in a shelter? I did not know that. What a shame.... My dad, Bob Williams, recruited and coached James at Sam Houston State University. (Coach Porter was the head coach).... I was just a child, but I remember James. I remembered his play,his accolades, how he came over to our apartment on campus and borrowed my Dad's car, and his friendly way with me as a boy.. I heard he made it big as a BB player in Europe... He was a very accomplished man... How did he end up in a shelter?

A player who will be sorely missed during the reunion of 29 December James Lister. The American, one of the players from the team EBBC-1979 that the first national title to Den Bosch pulled shows in September 2010 at the age of 59 in a shelter in Forth Worth deceased. The graceful center of yesteryear was debased.

Lister came two seasons for EBBC, it played 114 matches and scored 1424 points. He was very serious in his experience as an athlete and in that sense an ideal pawn coach of Show Boat. Lister had developed a strong insight into the game, which he terms rebounding and blocks shots a name to keep it. He was in that sense an ideal capstone of the defense of his team.
