 ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - Police said Wednesday former Villanova basketball star Howard Porter remained hospitalized with injuries suffered in a severe beating last weekend.
Porter, 58, who works as a probation officer in St. Paul, was found severely beaten in a Minneapolis alley early Saturday.
Few details about his condition or where he was hospitalized were released at the request of his family and out of concern for Porter's well-being. Police said no one had been arrested and they had no suspects.
After Porter's years as a star at Villanova, he was drafted by Chicago in 1971, the 32nd overall pick, and spent three seasons with the Bulls before playing with the New York Knicks and the Detroit Pistons. His professional career didn't live up to expectations, and Porter began using drugs.
Porter entered a rehab program in Minnesota in 1989, then entered a halfway house and turned his life around. In recent years as a probation officer, he's been known for drawing on his own experiences to show others they can improve their lives too.
