Tony Yates

Tony Yates dies at age 82. Any thoughts on his coaching tenure? I am too young to have seen him as a player. I think he could recruit but wasn't impressed with his coaching. I don't think he ever would have gotten us to the level that Huggins did.

I was in school when he was named head coach. He came with lots of promise but never really delivered. No one in the administration really wanted to have to get rid of him, but he left no choice. Louis Banks is still one of my favorite Bearcats and part of the top 10 class Yates brought to campus.

I remember his McDonalds All American recruit Roger McClendon could shoot the lights out ! Too bad the 3 point shot wasn't emphasized then like today. He was deadly from deep.

That's because the 3 point shot was not enacted across all of college basketball until 1986-1987 his senior year.

I think he had 2 year of 3 pt shooting - lights out the first year, not so much his senior year

The shot was not emphasized or strategized at that point. The Big man and the (lost art) mid range shot ruled the day. I'm sure the number of 3's taken then is miniscule compared to the amount taken today.
