Another Underappreciated USC Basketball Player

Remember last week I mentioned Cliff Robinson was the No. 11 pick in the 1979 NBA Draft? Well, how about forward Bill Hewitt? He was the No. 11 pick in the 1968 NBA Draft by the Lakers. He was an All-American and All-Pac-8 player. Hewitt averaged 19.5 points in 1967 and 18.8 in 1968. Hewitt is not in the USC Hall of Fame.

That’s not a great picture above but it’s a rare color photo of Hewitt in 1967. Below, is a much better photo.

      This is the sort of sensitivity training that could benefit the masses, you need to publish. Sooner rather than later.

      Eddie, Eddie, Eddie, how much has your Thug U education failed you. They did not teach you that in the old days they used film that would only produce black and white photos. To help you read this, I will write the word” edyoucation”, in a way that you can understand.

    Nor the Laker HoF.

    Just another great Toejam basketball player that had to sit and watch UCLA win 10 NC’s.

    Back when I went to lots of games, I believe he was also a JUCO ALL AMERICAN…it makes zero sense he isn’t in there…you are 100% correct

    SoCal basketball players are in the NCAA footnotes.
    The highlight of most of their careers was being allowed on the same court as UCLA twice a season for a basketball lesson.
