Congrats to Markquis...again
Little Rock sophomore point guard Markquis Nowell has been named a 2020 Lou Henson All-American, announced by CollegeInsider.com.
(Apparently this is a relatively new award for mid-major players.)

He becomes the ninth player in program history to earn All-America honors, joining Larry Drake (1973), Vaughn Williams (1982), Jimmy Lampley (1982), Donald Newman (1984), Michael Clarke (1985), Derek Fisher (1996), Muntrelle Dobbins (1997) and Solomon Bozeman (2011).

What's crazy is that 33% of the players on that list (Williams, Lampley, and Newman) were recruited by Ron Kestenbaum. Just crazy that he hasn't been inducted in the UALR Hall of Fame.

I completely agree. Kestenbaum was a basket away from glory. I wonder how many programs 40 years later still cringe at a players name like we do Eric Hightower? Anyway, he is a hall of gamer. Maybe we old fans need to push to get him in.
