Pac-12 Honors Former USC Basketball Player Ralph Vaughn

RALPH.VAUGHNRalph Vaughn was an All-American at USC and helped lead the Trojans to the Final Four in 1940. He was Life magazine’s national player of the year in 1940. Making the cover of Life magazine was about as good as it got between the 1930’s-50’s. And today, the Pac-12 inducted Vaughn into its men’s basketball Hall of Honor.

      Sammy Barry/bozo u 19 – 2 vs the usual cupcakes, lose to Kansas U in the semi’s by one point 42 – 43.

      Some things never change, bozo u BB, 1940, chokes on competitive competition.

        Just like Thug U, aka ugly, all the bball players are professionals since receiving payouts for apartments, clothes, money, abortions, drugs, and the usual perverted stuff over at ugly.

      To paraphrase comedian George Lopez, getting on that magazine cover doesn’t count. Vaughn didn’t play against any brothers.
