Felton Spencer, one of the most affable University of Louisville basketball players ever, has landed a spot in the Kentucky High School Athletic Association’s Hall of Fame.
Spencer, who attended Eastern High School, started at center for Louisville during the 1989-90 season, succeeding Pervis Ellison. He led the team in scoring with 14.9 points per game, 8.5 rebounds, 69 blocked shots and 68.9% field goal percentage.
Spencer was drafted by the Minnesota Timberwolves where he played for three seasons before bouncing around with six other teams in the NBA.
No, he isn’t still taking ballet lessons.
