Guy Lewis Rumors
Mark Berman: Elvin Hayes on passing of Guy Lewis: “We miss him but I know he’s much better off.I can see him running around coaching a great team up there. That kid to the University of Houston in a time of integration & put his career on the line & gave me an opportunity to achieve & accomplish all that I’m accomplishing today. It’s all due to Guy Lewis.” @UHCougarMBK
When former University of Houston coach Guy V. Lewis is inducted next month into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, Mass. his presenter will be fellow Hall of Famer Elvin Hayes. Inductees can chose their presenter from any member of the Hall of Fame and Hayes told FOX 26 Sports the Lewis family chose him, and he could not be more thrilled. Hayes, who was inducted into the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in 1990, was twice an Associated Press First-Team All-American under Lewis at the University of Houston, where he played from 1964-1968. Lewis was the AP’s NCAA Player of the year in 1968. “To be able to be a presenter for Guy Lewis at the Basketball Hall of Fame, it probably means just as much as when I was inducted into the Hall of Fame,” Hayes said.
