Logan, in the mid and late 60s, was a 6’0″ guard, short for even those days but he could jump like a Harrier jet, leaving those defending him open-mouthed and earthbound as Henry put more points on the scoreboard. it was indeed astounding to see him dominate all those tall guys.

After high school Logan became the first African-American collegiate athlete in the history of North Carolina and perhaps at any white institution in the southeastern United States when he enrolled at and played basketball for Western Carolina College, now Western Carolina University.

At WCC Logan scored like crazy, including 60 points in a game against Atlantic Christian in 1967, and he still — 45 years later — holds the record for most points in a season (1,049), a career (3,290) and highest career points average (30.7).

Logan led the nation in scoring for the 1967-68 season, when he averaged 36.2 points a game. During his four years — INCLUDING his FRESHMAN year — he made All American.
