LEXINGTON, Ky. -- Bob Burrow, a two-time All-American whose per-game average of 17.7 rebounds remains a Kentucky single-season record, has died.

The school made the announcement in a release Friday, saying Burrow died Thursday in Franklin, Tennessee. He was 84. No cause of death was given by the school or funeral home.

Burrow pulled down 459 rebounds in 26 games during the 1954-55 season. His 34 boards against Temple on Dec. 10, 1955, are tied with Billy Spivey for Kentucky's single-game mark. His 20.1-point scoring average ranks fourth in school history, and his 823 rebounds rank 10th.

After transferring from Lon Morris Junior College in Texas, Burrow scored 1,023 points from 1954 to 1956 with Kentucky. He earned Associated Press All-SEC and All-American honors both seasons and was a charter member of the UK Athletics Hall of Fame in 2005. Burrow played two NBA seasons with the Rochester Royals and Minneapolis Lakers.
