Ron Kellogg

Ronald A. (Ron) Kellogg Jr. (born December 19, 1962 in Omaha, Nebraska) is a retired American college and professional basketball player, best known for his college days as a left-handed sharpshooter for the successful Larry Brown-coached Kansas Jayhawks teams of the mid-1980s. Though he graduated one season before the NCAA implemented the three-point field goal, his propensity for sinking deep two-pointers earned him a reputation as one of the premier long-range shooters of his era in the Big Eight Conference. A 6’5” (1.96 m) swingman, he was drafted by the Atlanta Hawks of the NBA and played professionally in the CBA. Kellogg enrolled at Kansas in 1982 after a standout career at Northwest High School in Omaha, where he was a three-time all-state selection and was recruited by over 150 colleges before choosing KU over Iowa, Colorado, Nebraska, and Creighton. He played sparingly as a freshman under head coach Ted Owens, averaging 3.9 points on 41.0% shooting from the field in just over ten minutes per game. Though he showed only modest improvement as a sophomore in 1983-84, averaging 6.1 points per game on 43.
