By ROBIN WAGNER
The game is St. John's, N. Y.
vs. American University. A
guard for the Redman finesses
the ball upcourt. In subtle si-
lence, A. U.'s Kermit Washing-
ton lurks beneath the backboard.
A shot is taken. Spotting his cue,
Washington uncoils h i s 6'8"
jumping-jack-like frame, reaches
for the sky and deflects the ball
toward the stands.
Immediately upon returning to
the court, Washington lunges for
the escaping sphere, desperately
directs it at a teammate and
falls into the seats. American U.
commences a four-man fast
break. The ensuing shot is miss-
ed. Following the play, Wash-
ington engulfs the rebound and
combining dantiness with feroc-
ity, drops the ball through the
hoop.
The list of Kermit Washing-
ton's anonymous exploits is end-
less. Consider, for example, the
game during his sophomore sea-
son when, singlehandedly, he
outrebounded his opponents from
Loyola of Baltimore, 30-29. Or
consider the fact that in 59 of
his 60 varsity contests Wash-
ington has accumulated at least
10 rebounds. In the game he fail-
ed to do so, he played only three
minutes due to an ankle injury.
During those 180 seconds how-
ever, Washington gathered four
rebounds and blocked three shots.
The list continues. One season
ago, the native of Washington,
D.C. led the NCAA in rebounding
with a 19.8 average. The extent
of his recognition consisted of a
spot on last year's collegiate
All - Academic basketball squad.
He also outpolled Maryland's
Tom McMillan as the District of
Columbia's player of the year.
How does the ninth leading re-
bounder in NCAA history feel
about his lack of publicity? "To
tell you the truth, I've become
accustomed to it. I've never
been given any publicity, so I'm
just thankful for all that I get."
As a sophomore at American
U., Washington, t w o inches
shorter and sixty pounds lighter
than today, averaged 18.6 points
and 20.5 rebounds per game. The
year he paced the nation's re-
bounders, his point average in-
creased to 21.0. In addition, he
blocked 5.4 shots every game.
But only when he got bored with
scoring and rebounding. In his
senior year, through twelve con-
tests, Washington averages 20.1
points and 20.8 rebounds a game.
Only Elgin Baylor, Bill Rus-

sell, Paul Silas, Walter Dukes,
Artis Gilmore and Julius Erv-
ing averaged 20 points and 20 re-
bounds per game for a college
career. The name of Kermit
Washington may soon be added
to that exclusive list. With half
of a season remaining, Washing-
ton possesses a career average
of 19.8 points and 20.3 rebounds
a game. Not bad for a player
you have never heard of, is it?
"I'd say my main strengths
are rebaunding and hustling,"
Washington s t a t e d. "My
weaknesses? I don't like to shoot
a lot because I think people will
call me a ball hog. The coaches
always tell me to shoot more,
but I just can't get myself to
do it."
Washington's accomplishments
on the court are even more as-
tounding when one realizes his
first season of competitive hoops
was his senior year of high
school. Before his basketball de-
but, Washington's time was oc-
cupied by quarterbacking his
school football team and play-
ing on the tennis squad.
The senior's biggest basketball
disappointment occurred 1 a s t
summer when he failed to make
the Olympic team. Washington
remembers, "Sure, it bothered
me, but only because everyone
assumed the players who made
the team were better than me.
The Olympic coaches were
more disciplined than I was used
to and I couldn't adjust in time."

American U. roundball fans
quickly remember Washington's
outstanding games. Like the
time he scored 30 points (his ca-
reer high), grabbed 23 rebounds
and hit on 13 of 17 shots from
the floor against St. John's. Or
the game he had 34 rebounds
and 10 blocked shots against
Georgetown. And what about
that day against Duquesne when
Washington collected 27 points
on 13 of 19 from the field.
What do the ,experts think of
Washington? Bob Ferry of the
Baltimore Bullets describes,
"Kermit does as much for his
team as anybody in the coun-
try. Is he an All-American? Defi-
nitely."
The New York Knicks' Dick
McGuire adds, "He'll be a num-
ber one draft choice next year.
He's extremely quick, a great
leaper, he runs well and he has
great timing, especially in block-
ing shots."
Austin Carr of the Cleveland
Cavaliers said, "There's no
doubt Kermit is an All-Ameri-
can. He's as good as anyone I
played with or against in col-
lege."
The contest between St. John's
and American U. is over. In a
losing cause, Kermit Washington
has again performed brilliantly.
Retiring to the locker room,
Washington and his talent re-
main secrets to the world. Be
patient, Kermit. Soon, they will
all find out about you.

UNHERALDED KERMIT WASHINGTON of American University
deflects a shot during one of his many sterling performances
throughout his collegiate career. Should Washington continue to
perform in his prolific manner through the remainder of his senior
year, he could join that select group of basketeers to finish college
averaging both 20 points and 20 rebounds per game.
