This list does not include Reggie Gains that played for WSSU in the late 70s. He played in the NBA and was on the same team with Carlos Terry, that also played in the NBA. During that five year period, WSSU had four guys to make it to the NBA. This about the time that the white schools started to take all the great players from HBCUs. This was the same period when the SWAC started to lose all those great football players. They were getting all the four and five start players that the SEC is now getting and the CIAA was getting all the players the ACC is getting in basketball.

Those were the good days of HBCU sports.

Maybe it was because Gaines was drafted in June and was out the NBA by October.  :shrug:

Maybe that's the reason he was not listed. Thanks for the information.

Ya'll, just think about how much talent HBCUs had during the 70s and back. While I was at WSSU,we had four NBA caliber players on one team. Our football team had at least eight guys to make it to the NFL. But there were many of our schools that had that kind of talent. Boy has things changed.
