Background[edit]

Fogle, born in Brooklyn, New York, played basketball at Cooley High School in Detroit, Michigan. In February 1972, Fogle established a city league single-game scoring record of 73 points (versus Cody High); at season's end, Larry Fogle was named Michigan High School Player of the Year by the Detroit News. Upon graduating from Cooley, Fogle played collegiate basketball for the University of Southwestern Louisiana (now the University of Louisiana at Lafayette) and Canisius College.[1]

A 6' 5" (1.96 m) and 205 lb (93 kg) guard, Fogle was selected as an underclassman in the 1974 ABA draft in the eighth round by the Denver Nuggets after leading the NCAA in individual scoring, averaging 33.4 points per game and 14 rebounds per game in the 1973-74 season.[1] That year Fogle was named an All-American by the United States Basketball Writers Association [2] and the National Association of Basketball Coaches named him a third team All-American.[3] Fogle opted to stay in college and the following year he was drafted in the second round of the 1975 NBA Draft by the New York Knicks and in the fifth round of the 1975 ABA Draft by the Spirits of St. Louis.[4]

Fogle played for the Knicks in the 1975-76 NBA season, appearing in two games and scoring two points to go with three rebounds.[4]
