Billy Ray Smith
l am watching a game between K State and Tulsa from 1989, and one of the main players for KSU was Billy Ray Smith. I am so used to hearing that name applied to Arkansas football over two generations that it is a little hard to get used to in a basketball context.

RE: Billy Ray Smith
Another K-State name that gave me some problems is Jean Derouillere. In a previous game I listened to, the announcers kept pronouncing it Delaware, and I thought they were just messing it up. But they eventually explained that that is the way he pronounces it, evidently because no one could pronounce it correctly that way it would have been in French.
