Listen: George McGinnis on the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame podcast

George McGinnis made a big impact at every level of basketball that he competed.  Below on the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame podcast he speaks primarily about his legendary days as a high school basketball star in Indianapolis

Upon graduating from Washington High School in Indianapolis, McGinnis had to sit out a season under the NCAA’s rules for freshmen at the time.  He would only play one season at IU, but it might have been the best single season performance in the program’s history.

For his sophomore campaign McGinnis averaged 29.9 points and 14.7 rebounds at IU.  He led the Big Ten in both categories.  He also added 2.8 assists per game and helped the Hoosiers to add 10 more wins to their total from the previous season.
