Three former Chicago area standouts have been named among the University of Cincinnati's all-time top 50 basketball players.
They are George Wilson of Marshall, Lloyd Batts of Thornton, and Levertis Robinson of King.
Wilson, generally regarded as one of the top five high school players in state history, led Marshall to state championships in 1958 and 1960, started on Cincinnati's NCAA championship team in 1962 and played on the U.S. Olympic team in 1964. He played in the NBA for seven years.
Batts, who graduated from Cincinnati as the school's second all-time leading scorer behind Oscar Robertson, was a two-time All-Stater at Thornton in 1969 and 1970. He played in Europe for nine years.
Robinson and Marcus Liberty starred on King's 1986 state championship team.
The top five players on Cincinnati's all-time list are Robertson, Jack Twyman, Danny Fortson, Nick Van Excel and Kenyon Martin.
