About Oscar Robertson: Born Nov. 24, 1938, in Charlotte, Tenn., and raised in Indianapolis, Oscar Robertson learned to play basketball on the dirt courts of the inner city and refined his game through endless hours of individual practice.

He first attracted national attention at Crispus Attucks High School, where he led his team to a 45-game winning streak, two consecutive Indiana state championships and a national championship, and was named "Mr. Basketball" for the state of Indiana. Attucks was the first African-American school and the first Indianapolis school to win the Indiana state crown.

At the University of Cincinnati, where he became known as "The Big O," he led the Bearcats to the Final Four in 1959 and '60. He was a three-time first team All-American, and the first player to lead the NCAA in scoring three straight years or to win National College Player of the Year honors three times.

Following graduation in 1960 with a B.S. degree in Business, he co-captained the undefeated 1960 U.S. Olympic gold medalist team, often considered the greatest basketball team ever assembled.

During his 14-year NBA career ten with the Cincinnati Royals and four with the Milwaukee Bucks Robertson led his teams to 10 playoff appearances, including an NBA championship with the Bucks in 1971. He was the NBA's Rookie of the Year in 1961 and Most Valuable Player in 1964. He was a 12-time NBA All-Star and was voted Most Valuable Player in three All-Star games. In 1961-62, he became the only player in NBA history ever to average a "triple double" for an entire season. He led the league in free-throw percentage twice and assists six times.

His career record of 9,887 assists stood for 17 years and his 26,710 points and 25.7 points per game average rank him seventh on the list of all-time NBA scorers.

In 1998, the U.S. Basketball Writers renamed its annual player of the year award the Oscar Robertson Trophy.
