"Robert E. "Bob" Lloyd" is an American former professional basketball player in the American Basketball Association (ABA), even though he was drafted by the NBA's Detroit Pistons in the 7th round of the 1967 NBA Draft. Lloyd began his ABA career with the New Jersey Americans; the team became the New York Nets in 1968 (and is now the NBA's Brooklyn Nets). In two ABA seasons, Lloyd scored 1,127 points in his career, good for a 9.0 points per game average.
At Rutgers University, Lloyd became the Rutgers Scarlet Knights men's basketball/Scarlet Knights' first ever First Team All-American. He still holds the school record for career scoring average (26.5 ppg), and as a senior in 1966–67 he led NCAA Division I (NCAA)/Division I in free throw percentage (.921), making 255-of-277 attempts. Also in that season, Lloyd coupled with fellow guard (basketball)/guard and college roommate Jim Valvano to lead Rutgers to their first-ever postseason basketball tournament, the 1967 National Invitation Tournament, where they defeated University of Nebraska 119-88 to reach the Final Four of the tournament. They defeated Marshall Thundering Herd men's basketball/Marshall 93-76 in the third place game. In 1987, Lloyd became the first Rutgers athlete to have his jersey retired.More Bob Lloyd on Wikipedia.
