#13 P3 PARSONS VIKINGS L TO R MELVIN COLUMN, SAMMY ROBINSON, BIG 8 SOPHOMORE OF THE YEAR FOR K STATE & JACK CRANE 1961


Left to right, Melvin "SLEEPY" Column, Big 8 Sophomore of the year Sammy Robinson, & Jack Crane for Parsons High School. I think Jack looks like Ricky Nelson. SAMMY ROBINSON, STARTING GUARD FOR KANSAS STATE LOST IN THE FINAL FOUR TO UCLA WHO WENT ON TO WIN 10 NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIPS in 12 years. KANSAS STATE HAD A 6 POINT LEAD ON UCLA WITH 3 MINUTES TO GO.
LUCIUS ALLEN, WHO PLAYED IN PARSONS IN 1964 FOR WYANDOTTE H. S. FROM KANSAS CITY, WAS STARTING GUARD FOR UCLA WITH LEW ALCINDOR ON NCAA CHAMPIONSHIP TEAMS. THEY BOTH STARTED ON
THE 1971 MILWAUKEE BUCKS NBA CHAMPS. THEY STARTED TOGETHER FOR THE LOS ANGELES LAKERS ALSO. UCLA won 13 straight conference championships during this period. Kansas should win their 13th straight conference championship this year to tie UCLA & hopefully #14 next year. CLick on this video & see Lucius Allen at the 1 min 35 second mark & Lew Alcindor alias Kareem Abdul Jabbar playing Wilt Chamberlin & the Lakers.
