Erv Terry, Men's Basketball 1974-75, 1975-76
Erv Terry, North Division High School (Milwaukee, WI) had a career at SCC marked by style, steals and amazement. Erv and teammate, Steve Alexander, are remembered by basketball historians as perhaps two of the finest guards ever to play in the same backcourt on any NWAACC team. Terry’s ball handling magic and his ability to see the open man ranks him as one of the top assist and steal leaders in SCC history. Erv’s oft repeated trademark “marquee” move, one never before seen in the NWAACC, was a breakaway steal ending with a mid-air 360 degree turn-around front rim finger roll with his signature tassled socks flying on his shoes. Terry still ranks as one of the all-time leaders in season assists (247), single game assists (19), season scoring (500 points), and career scoring (868 points). As the SCC MVP from 1974-76, Erv was also selected to the 1976 All NWAACC Tournament, and All Eastern Region first teams. Erv culminated his playing career at Samford University in Birmingham, Alabama.
