Biography

From 1967 to 1970, Rick Mount put together what remains the most prolific scoring career in Purdue history. After a year on the freshman team, Mount piled up 2,323 points over the next three seasons, averaging 32.3 points per game. A banner 1968-69 season saw the Boilermakers claim the Big Ten title, make the program’s first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance and reach the national title game, with Mount taking home consensus All-America accolades. Mount repeated as a consensus All-American as a senior after averaging a league-record 35.4 points per game. The three-time All-Big Ten first team selection was drafted No. 1 overall by the Indiana Pacers in the 1970 ABA draft and went on to play five professional seasons.
