Kenny Arnold      Illinois 

Position(s): G

Kenny Arnold attended Calumet High School and lived in Chicago, Illinois.

COLLEGE: A three-year starter, he played on four NCAA Tournament teams, Iowa's 1979 Big Ten championship team, and second place finishes in the Big Ten his junior and senior seasons. He averaged 11.7 points and a team-best 3.9 assists his junior campaign, and 10 points and 2.9 assists his senior year. He was a third-team All-Big Ten honoree his senior year. He ranks 37th in Iowa scoring (1,112) and 10th in assists (352).

During his sophomore year, he was the glue that held the Hawkeyes together during a magical season that was filled with injuries. All-American guard Ronnie Lester suffered multiple knee injuries, as well as injuries to Bob Hansen, and Mark Gannon. He played with a broken thumb that season, led the team in scoring (13.5 ppg) and assists (4.3 apg), and helped them reach the Final Four.

PROFESSIONAL: He was drafted by the Dallas Mavericks with the 96th overall pick in the 1982 NBA Draft.

OTHER: For 30-plus years, he battled a number of health issues, including a brain tumor and several strokes, which limited his mobility and ability to speak. In 2017, Iowa introduced the Kenny Arnold Spirit Award at its postseason award ceremony. This annual award is presented to the Hawkeye who exemplifies Arnold's spirit of leadership, character, courage, determination, and poise.

Born 6/7/1959 and died on 4/27/2019 at the age of 59.

All Conference: 3rd Team (1982) Drafted Round 5 by Dallas Mavericks in 1982
