In my column of Thursday morning (3/8), I wrote about second-generation connections at the state basketball tournament — in particular, the sons of former Lobos.
Matt King also was a Lobo — a walk-on for coach Fran Fraschilla in 2000-01. Pat King was a small but tough point guard, recruited out of southern California, who was a key backup on coach Norm Ellenberger’s 1973-74 Western Athletic Conference championship team.
As a senior in ’75-76, Pat King averaged 10.9 points and 4.3 assists per game.
Thanks to Gary Spitzberg, longtime college and high school statistician, for the heads up.
