Podcast: E029 – Dave Robisch

When you hear the name Dave Robisch, maybe you don’t think “superstar.” But maybe you should. After all, Robisch was a two-time All-American and a two-time Big Eight Player of the Year. His career scoring average ranks fourth in school history and he helped the Jayhawks to the 1971 Final Four. And he did it all while also performing as an all-conference pitcher for the baseball team. He would go on to have a 13-year career in the ABA and NBA, and his jersey was raised to the rafters of Allen Fieldhouse in 2005. While his accolades read like those of an all-time great, his career wasn’t without its trials. How does one moment from the 1971 Final Four still haunt him? And how was that Final Four team one of the most impactful in Kansas history?
