Clay Evans
Hometown (Last School)
Flemingsburg, KY
March 8, 1934

From the 1954 University of Kentucky Basketball Media Guide:

Smallest man on the varsity squad at 5-9 and 165, Evans makes up for lack of size with ability and determination . . . A good shot and regarded as a steady, dependable performer, he should see limited reserve action this year while gaining vital game experience . . . Captained his high school team in his last two seasons and starred in the first annual East-West All-Star Game in the Coliseum in 1952.

Transferred to Morehead after Sophomore Season
