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.
