SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -Hal Perry, who teamed with Bill Russell and K.C. Jones on San Francisco's back-to-back NCAA champions in the 1950s, has died. He was 75.
The school said Tuesday that Perry died last Thursday in the East Bay after a long illness.
Perry was a starter on Dons team that dominated college basketball in the mid-1950s, winning the title in 1955 and '56. San Francisco went 57-1 in his two years as a starter, including a 29-0 mark in 1956.
Perry averaged 6.9 points and 1.9 rebounds per game as a junior. The following year he increased his output to 9.1 points and stayed at 1.9 rebounds per game.
He was a member of the all-tournament team in 1956, scoring 28 points in his two Final Four games.
Perry is survived by his children, Harold Jr., Eric and Gale, and siblings, Rubin, Manuel and Barbara Perry-Daniels.
