A letter from an alum about the Penn-Princeton basketball rivalry

February 11, 2004

Your January 28 article on the basketball rivalry with Penn didn't go back far enough. Who could forget the great Ernie Beck, Penn '53; a great jump shot, smooth in the high post, Penn's all-time scoring leader with 1827 points, first pick in the 1953 NBA draft. He also had a hairstyle worthy of Elvis, something rarely seen in Dillon Gym in those days.

J.D. Coughlan '55
San Francisco, Calif.
