who was only 5'8 and weighed 150 lbs. Grew a bit and turned out to be a pretty good player. Think his name was Goodrich.

When I was still traveling a lot in about 1969, I ran into the Phoenix Suns in the Phoenix airport and stopped to say hi to their coach, "Red" Kerr, who I had played against in High School back in Illinois. While we were chatting, I recognized Gail Goodrich nearby and although I didn't get a chance to meet him, he looked to be around 6' to 6'1 from where I was standing. I still can remember his outstanding game against Michigan in that NCAA championship against Cazzie Russell's Michigan team.
