Earlier this month sports writer and historian Nate Allen announced to the Kiwanis Club that Sidney Moncrief was going to be the speaker for their 16th Annual Jewell Morris Memorial Golf Tournament that happened on May 11 at noon at the Harrison Country Club. It was a very big deal to get a basketball star like Moncrief to come to the event, especially since the majority of players were familiar with him during his historic NCAA days with the University of Arkansas Razorbacks. He spoke about an hour prior to the tee off of the tournament, which gave the participants something to mentally chew on as they hit the greens.
According to Allen, Moncrief has the most impact on the state of Arkansas out of all basketball players ever to play the sport in the area. He joined the Razorbacks in 1975 and played through 1979 when he finished college and was the 5th overall pick by the Milwaukee Bucks in the 1979 NBA draft. Moncrief stayed with them for 11 years before he went to play for the Atlanta Hawks from 1990-91 991. After he retired from playing, the basketball great then went on to coach college ball and NBA D-team.
The former NBA guard gave an exciting talk about his life and career in sports, and was a surefire crowd pleaser at the annual golf tournament event. Overall, it was a huge success and people were glad to see a man who often frequented their television screens stand on the golf course with them.
