Maloy attended Davidson College – although he never graduated – and was the first black player to play for the Davidson Wildcats men's basketball team, where he was a three-time All-American and Southern Conference Player of the Year in 1969 and 1970. Maloy is the school's all-time leading rebounder with a 12.9 average, and the school's seventh-leading scorer with 1,661.
Professional basketball career
Upon becoming a professional, Maloy was drafted by the Boston Celtics of the NBA, but he rejected the draft and played three seasons in the ABA instead, with the Virginia Squires and the Dallas Chaparrals. He later played professionally in Austria, where he became a naturalised citizen in 1980.
Upon leaving the professional team in Austria, Maloy coached Austrian youth teams. He also taught at the American International School of Vienna, Austria, where he coached a team as well.
When he was not coaching or teaching, Maloy was a member of the Boring Blues Band, which performed regularly throughout Vienna.
