Dick Ives      Iowa Wikipedia 

Dick Ives attended Diagonal High School and lived in Diagonal, Iowa. After leading his high school team to the state championship, he passed up the opportunity to play college basketball at Drake University on a full athletic scholarship. He wanted to play at Iowa under coach "Pops" Harrison.

He entered the University of Iowa in the fall of 1943. Due to World War II and the lack of able-bodied male student athletes across the nation, the NCAA allowed freshmen to play varsity sports in college, which until that time had been disallowed.

He led the team in scoring for his first three seasons, and as a freshman he scored a school and Big Ten Conference-record 43 points in a single game.

He was a three-time All-American, and in 1944–45 he was voted as a consensus Second Team All-American, helping lead the Hawks to the Big Ten Conference championship. After his senior year in 1946–47, Ives was drafted by the Pittsburgh Ironmen of the Basketball Association of America.

He earned him the nickname "Diagonal Dagger."

Born 7/22/1924 and died on 5/5/1997 at the age of 72.

All American: 2nd Team (1945), 3rd Team (1944, 1946) U of Iowa Athletics Hall of Fame Drafted Round 4 by Pittsburgh Ironmen (BAA) in 1947
