Paul Unruh

Paul R. Unruh (born 1928) is an American former college basketball standout at Bradley University from 1946 to 1950. He finished as Bradley's all-time leading scorer and was a Consensus First Team All-American as a senior in 1949–50. A native of the greater Peoria, Illinois metropolitan area, Unruh attended Toulon High School prior to matriculating at Bradley. As a freshman in 1946–47, Unruh scored 383 points, which was a freshman scoring record at Bradley until Mitchell "J.J." Anderson surpassed it in 1979. Over the course of his four-year career, Unruh scored 1,822 points and led Bradley in scoring all four seasons. When he graduated he was the school's all-time leading scorer and is one of two players to lead the Braves in scoring all four years. In his senior season, Unruh scored 475 points while leading Bradley to second place finishes in both the National Invitation Tournament (NIT) and National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) Tournament—a team accomplishment that had never been accomplished, nor will ever be accomplished again to due the impossibility of a team participating in both postseason tournaments in the same season.
