16 points are scored by a forward from Indiana who was the first Gopher to score 40 points in a game. A 4th round draftee by the Lakers, he instead went into the investment business and for years was thought to be a genius until running into trouble with the SEC. Can you name him?

Leo: George Kline? I talked to Frank Howard one time at Twinsfest. He also played basketball for Ohio State and he mentioned playing against George Kline.

More of a guess than through knowledge, but the name Klein is entering my head.
