Born to Charles and Margaret Black, Black was the first Jayhawk to score 1000 points in his career, and as I type this, is the only KU player to be named All-American in four seasons. He served in the Army Air Corps during World War 2 before a professional basketball career that spanned five seasons. He later became a farmer and a sales representative.
