LOU HUDSONGame 136 | October 28, 1965 | Lou Hudson, John Kundla
It had been 14 years since Kundla had talked at Dunkers as the Minneapolis Lakers coach. This time he was back as the Gophers basketball coach, and he had his star player with him. Hudson, whose banner hangs in Williams Arena, was a smooth 6-5 forward who played his senior season with a broken shooting hand. He became the first Gopher to be taken in the first round of the NBA draft and went on to a 13-year career with St. Louis, Atlanta and the Los Angeles Lakers.
