Once again, we have another player who had a solid pro career that is overshadowed by a spectacular college career. Hersey Hawkins
is only one of six players to score more than 6,000 career points in Division One. Hawkins and Chet Walker are easily the two best players ever to come from Bradley University; and the Braves are one of the best programs ever that nobody remembers. This might be hurting him. He may be sadly best remembered for an injury that kept him out of most of the 1988 Olympic Games and some say cost the team a gold due to their lack of perimeter shooting. This of course led to the Dream Team being created so he has got that going for him.
