He never wanted to be the star. “A star plays great one night and not so great the next. I’m a ballplayer, ballplayers do everything and they do it every night.” A southern California native, he never wanted to play at UCLA. Oregon was home and the fans appreciated him as a member of the famed “Kamikaze Kids.”

The 6-7 forward was the hard-nosed catalyst to Oregon squads that played in three straight NIT tournaments when it was nearly impossible to make the NCAA field. The team’s most valuable player and all-American as a senior in 1976-77, he ranks third in one-season and career scoring and is the school’s all-time leading rebounder, the only Duck to pull down more than 1,000 in his career. He’s the Ducks’ highest NBA draft pick ever and was a 10-year professional with Washington and Golden State.
