Richard Anthony Rosenthal (January 20, 1933 – June 11, 2024) was an American basketball player. An National Basketball Association (NBA) forward with the Fort Wayne Pistons, he played collegiate basketball for the Notre Dame men's basketball team, where he averaged 16.4 points per game over his career.[1] Rosenthal also played baseball at Notre Dame in 1952 and 1953.[2] The Pistons drafted him in the first round of the 1954 NBA draft.

Rosenthal retired from the position in 1994, after the university entered the Big East Conference.[4]
