Wyndol Gray Print E-mail
Bowling Green's first All-American in basketball, Wyndol Gray came highly touted to the university, earning All-Ohio honors his senior year at Akron South. He was a member of Harold Anderson's first team at BG in 1942-43, averaging 22.9 points per game that season, a mark that still stands as ninth best in school history. His 503 total points set an Ohio college freshman record. Gray served as co-captain with Donald Otten of the 1944-45 team that reached the championship game of the NIT. Gray was named outstanding player of the Boston and Buffalo regions of that tournament, and was also named to the Madison Square Garden All-Star team for the final rounds. His efforts that season also earned him team MVP honors.

Like many of his classmates, Gray served time in the military, joining the Navy in 1943, playing a year for the Great Lakes region team, returning to Bowling Green in 1944 as a part of the university's V-12 program. He played for Harvard in 1945-46, again earning All-American honors. Gray was an original member of the Boston Celtics in 1946-47, and finished his two-year pro career in Providence and St. Louis.

He was inducted to the BG Athletic Hall of Fame in 1964. He passed away January 30, 1994.
