In his junior season (1964-65), he led the Commodores to their first SEC championship (Overall: 24-4, SEC: 15-1). Vanderbilt reached the NCAA Mideast Regional Finals, where they lost to Michigan, 87-85. During his senior season (1965-66), he earned All-American honors and the SEC Player of the Year Award.
