Sweet Lou up for two

 

Nicknamed “Sweet Lou” by Hawks broadcaster Jerry Gross for the smooth way a jumper left his hands and went down, Lou Hudson spent two years thrilling fans in St. Louis with a variety of shots and moves that made him one of the premier stars of the NBA. Here in this January 29th, 1967 game at Kiel, Lou gets two ahead of Philadelphia’s Matt Goukas in a 114-108 Hawk win over the eventual NBA Champion 76’ers. Sweet indeed, Hudson finished with 20 points.
