Yes I knew that about Bill but didn't want to overload the piece. His older brother WAS given a scholarship at Mizzou. Bill remains a good friend of Silky O'Sullivan, the crown prince of Beale Street in Memphis..Silky has his joint right across the street from the new edifice in Memphis and holds court there daily. The Laurie brothers played high school basketball in Versailles, Missouri where Bud Walton's (Bills father in law) widow still resides. Ironic it is that Mike Anderson was introduced in Fayvetteville at Bud Walton Arena.
FYI - Dollar Bill Laurie was a starting guard for Memphis and played in a National Championship game. He was a very good player.
He was pretty good at wife selection as well
