From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Don Schlundt (March 14, 1932—October 11, 1985) was an American collegiate basketball player.

Collegiate career

Schlundt, a 6'9 center, played collegiately at the Indiana University after a standout high school career at Washington Clay High School in South Bend, Indiana. He played for the Hoosiers from 1951-1955. Freshmen were eligible to play college basketball in 1952 due to the Korean War, making Schlundt the rare 50's player to compete for four years. Schlundt led the Hoosiers to the 1953 National Championship.

Schlundt was named an All-American in 1953, 1954 and 1955. He left IU as the school's all-time leading scorer with 2,192 points - a mark that stood for 32 years until Steve Alford broke it. Following the completion of his collegiate career, Schlundt opted to pursue a career in business rather than professional basketball[1].

He was elected to the Indiana University athletics Hall of Fame in 1982 and is also a member of the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame. Schlundt died of cancer on October 11, 1985[2].
