Arkansas Basketball, 1970s

Van Eman’s tenure also was notable for recruiting Martin Terry, pictured above, and Dean Tolson. Both were phenomenal players and the first black stars of the modern era of Razorbacks basketball. A talented scorer, Terry was named first-team All-SWC in 1972 and 1973, posting scoring averages of 24.3 and 28.3, respectively. Terry still holds the school record for single season and career scoring averages.
