Monclova Steve is on a distinguished road
Another that comes to mind:
Little Louie Dampier, who played at UK in the mid-60's. He was a 6' guard who had incredible range as well as accuracy from 20' and well beyond.
When he left UK, he was 3rd all-time in scoring, averaging 19.7 ppg for his career there.
Drafted by both the Cincinnati Royals AND the Kentucky Colonels, he opted for the Colonels (good choice, sadly for this Royals fan), where he had a great career in the ABA which had the 3-point shot. He played all 9 years that the ABA existed, then finished his career by spending 3 years with the SA Spurs in the NBA backing up George Gervin.
He was inducted into the Naismith Hall of Fame a couple of years ago. Not bad for a 6-footer.
