Hall of Fame Class:
1977 (Men’s Basketball)

Florida State basketball star Dave Cowens used hustle and hard work to carve his place among the Seminole all-time greats. He scored 1,479 points over his 78-game career at FSU, but was even better known for his rebounding skills. He averaged a startling 17.1 rebounds per game totaling 1,340 over his career. He led the Seminoles to the 1968 NCAA Tournament as a sophomore and the Hugh Durham coached squad finished with a 19-8 record. Cowens’ jersey number 13 was the only men’s basketball jersey retired in the 20th century. Cowens was a first round draft pick by the Boston Celtics in 1970 and was voted to the NBA Hall of Fame.
