He grew up in Govans, a poor kid on welfare who never owned a basketball. But that didn't stop Gene Shue from making his name in the game. He starred at Towson Catholic and then at Maryland, where Shue broke all of the Terps' scoring records and made All-American. A first-round NBA draft pick in 1954, he played a decade in the pros, earning a reputation as a defensive guard and making the All-Star team five times. Then Shue moved to coaching, where, over 22 years, he developed a knack for turning train-wreck pro teams into winners.
