Harry Flournoy


On the memorable Sports Illustrated cover, it is Harry Flournoy going up for a rebound against Pat Riley of Kentucky. Flournoy played for six minutes in the championship game, grabbing two boards and scoring two points before leaving with a twisted left knee.

Flournoy now works in route sales for Los Angeles-based Bimbo Bakeries, USA. He and his wife, Sukari, have eight grown children.
