Antoine Carr (Basketball, 1979-83)

Helped bring his hometown university back to national basketball prominence in the early 1980's teaming with Cliff Levingston to form the powerful "Bookend Forwards" combination that dazzled opponents and fans alike. In his final game against Southern Illinois, he established a Shocker scoring record with 47 points and later became one of only four Shockers to be honored by having his uniform number 35 retired. As a senior, he earned first-team All-America acclaim and was voted the Missouri Valley Conference Player of the Year in 1983. In each of his four years, he was honored as and All-MVC player. He finished his career as the fourth-leading scorer in Shocker history with 1,911 points. A remarkable athlete at 6-foot-9, Carr gained notoriety for his explosive dunks, yet he commanded a feathery shooting touch. He performed on two Missouri Valley Conference championship squads, including the 1981 team that advanced to the finals of the NCAA Midwest Regional by beating arch-rival Kansas in the famous "Battle of New Orleans." He was a first-round draft choice of the Detroit Pistons in 1983. Inducted, 1989.
