'lewie Is A Minority Of One'

This story happened to come up on the Sports Illustrated page as an archive story.

Cool read.

It is significant that when Alcindor takes the floor this Saturday in Los Angeles for his first varsity game, he will be jumping against another 7-footer—Ron Taylor of Southern California. Alcindor, who is 7 feet 1?", is, in fact, only slightly taller than 50 collegians who are in the neighborhood of 7 feet. ( Brigham Young has three.) But great height alone is no longer the fearsome weapon it was in Kurland's day. The game's strategists have effectively spiked it. Lew Alcindor casts a long shadow from a good deal more than size.
