Matty, add Solly Walker first Black BB player for St.John's in the 50's.Favorite memory of him was winning a jump ball in final seconds of a close Holiday Festival Game vs LaSalle in MSG by swatting ball to mid court before Explorers could recover it and get off potential winning shot! That LaSalle team (Gola,Jackie Moore, Norm Grekin, Fred Ihele, and Buddy Donnelly) used to run 1-2 to the great San Francisco teams of that era with Russell and KC Jones!RIP Solly, Kenny (out of Santa Clara Univ),Louis, and Sam!
