James Gerber Print E-mail
A product of West High School in Akron, this talented athlete became a three-time All-Ohio and All-Mid American cager at Bowling Green.

As a sophomore he scored 458 points, then topped that the following season (1952-53) with 555 points. The latter season the Falcons earned a National Invitational Tournament bid and Gerber a spot on the NIT All-Tournament team with a 39-point effort against Western Kentucky. Gerber ranks 12th on the all-time scoring list at BG, with 1,495 points in his three year career.

His coach, Harold Anderson, paid him the highest compliments when he said, "I've had a lot of great players - including Chuck Share, Don and Mac Otten and Bob Gerber - but Jim was the best of them all."

He was inducted into the BG Athletic Hall of Fame in 1992.
