description:

Famous shot of Kent Benson's hook shot over Purdue's Tom Scheffler. This image appears on page 18 of the November 1976 issue of the Indiana Alumni Magazine. Contrary to popular belief, Kent Benson is not the only IU basketball player to have been the first pick in the first round of the NBA draft. Walt Bellamy also shares that distinction.
