In reply to: Dies at 93 's message, "Dale Barnstable, basketball player who was banned from NBA for life in 1951 for point shaving." on Sunday, January 27, 06:59:07am

Dale Barnstable (March 4, 1925 January 26, 2019) was an American basketball player from Antioch, Illinois who was banned for life from the National Basketball Association (NBA) in 1951 for point shaving. He had an outstanding college career at the University of Kentucky before his career came to an abrupt end.


"As for the 50s, UK held a 224-33 (.872) record, and again went 2-2 in national championship games. However, in 1951, after winning their third title in four years, Kentucky was forced to cancel the entire 1952-53 season following a point-shaving scandal led by Ralph Beard, Alex Groza, and Dale Barnstable."

This was the same scandal that killed the basketball programs at then powerhouses CCNY and NYU, which also netted players from Kentucky, Toledo and Bradley universitiesRussSunday, January 27, 07:18:44am
