Ed Davis

It is hard not to remember ol' Bennie if you played on the same team with him. Certainly his skills and his performances were great, even though he was off his game at times. He was a fun guy to hang out with off the court as well. But, perhaps the real reason we remember him is because Coach always gave us his picture before a game and told us to find this guy on the court and pass him the ball whenever we could. Good advice, Coach, because all of us enjoyed seeing that line-drive type shot go through the net as often as it did.

Ed Davis

Sure would be nice if Bennie could make some comments about this post and some of the others as well. Also, would be nice if some of the guys from the teams of 58-60 would chime in with their memories of ol' Ben.

Dan Jensen

...guys like Hugh Taylor and Paul Timmins.

There were other guys, of course, who played with Bennie but none have posted anything in here. Hugh and Paul have...but not lately.

Hugh Taylor

Sure I remember ol' Ben, he's that,
"skinney as a rail", kid that played for League City Elem. years ago along with Gerald Mathis & others. He was pretty good then, but
I wasn't scared cause he was not in my class. We never played then. In high school things were a little different. He was better. We played
"horse" a few times & I could hold my own, usually came in second in a two horse race.
On offense he would get the ball and pretend he was looking for someone to pass to, however, he was just waiting to take his shot. Sort of like James Davis did. Hold the ball for what seemed like two minutes and then go up & shoot the jump shot. Usually there were not any re-bounds with ol' Ben & Ed & Chuck shooting, probably why my rebound stats are somewhat under B. Doty's. I only got to see him as a soph & jr & then I went off to school.
One thing is sure, he would not score 30 or 40 points against me. I have pride! I would have used my 5 fouls and sat down before he scored that many against me.
It's your turn Paul. I went to a Party for Johnny Baker & Ray Whitley & saw Kinneth Lundy & we talked about Norman. Would like to see him again.

What ever became of Jimmy Lenox. He played football for Creek.

SHORTY

YOU WERE TALKING ABOUT THE LENOX BROTHERS OF CLEAR CREEK HIGH. I AM WONDERING WHAT EVER BECAME OF THE BROTHER JIMMY DALE LENOX THAT PLAYED FOOTBALL FOR CREEK? DID HE PLAY COLLEGE BALL? THANKS.

Dan Jensen

Jimmie Dale was a nephew of Bennie, Curly and Scooter. He got a basketball scholarship to Texas A&M.

Jimmie Dale's brother Ronnie played football at Stephen F. Austin in Nacogdoches.

Mike Smith

While Bennie Lenox lasted all four years at the Agricultural & Mechanical College of Texas/Texas A&M University as I believe that Bennie Lenox attended college there during the name change, and while Bennie's little brother played basketball at and started for the University of Texas in the late 1960s into the early 1970s (Scooter could shoot, but unlike Bennie, Scooter never, ever dribbled with his left hand which is not too good for being a guard). Curly Lenox only lasted one year in College Station back in the old AMC days circa 1961-62 with Curly Lenox starting for the Frogs in the backcourt with fellow starting guard Davey Johnson, from San Antonio's Alamo Heights "inner burg". I think grades got Curly Lenox while Davey Johnson went pro in baseball in the Baltimore Orioles organization. At least today, Davey Johnson managed the USA baseball team, a very young and inexperienced team, to a 2008 Olympic Games bronze medal. So, the AMC freshman team's starting backcourt of Curly Lenox and Davey Johnson both only stayed one year in College Station.

Bennie Lenox was the Head Coach of the Shorthorns for the University of Texas from the late 1960s into the early 1970s and the assistant coach for the Longhorns basketball team during the same period coaching Scooter Lenox during this period.

I think that Bennie Lenox got tired of all of the time on the road being the primary recruiter for the University of Texas basketball team and wanted to go to sleep in his own bed every night which is why Bennie got out of the basketball coaching business.

Mike Smith

Correction: Both Curly Lenox and Davey Johnson played only one year in College Station before freshmen were eligible to play varsity basketball and the freshman team was called the Fish as I recall and stand to be corrected. Davey Johnson, as a freshman, was eligible in the early 1960s to play varsity baseball where he was the star in College Station on the baseball team which is why Davey Johnson turned professional in baseball after one year in College Station.

Dan Jensen

Curly Lenox was not a teammate of Davy Johnson. It was older brother Bennie that was in the same class and played with Johnson on the freshman team. Johnson was a good defensive basketball player but was at A&M only the one year, as you said.

scott jones

I played freshman basketball as a walk on at the University of Texas under Coach Lenox. He coached the team to an undefeated season with a group of great players and still allowed everyone on the team (yes, even walk-ons) to feel a part of the practices as well as the games. It was great fun and it is unfortunate that he never moved into the Head Coaching role.

Scott Jones

Lennie Schmidt

I was one year behind Bennie Lenox at Clear Creek High School. I graduated in 1961. I probably watched every game he played in high school. We lived within a block of each other in old League City. Our Dad's worked together at the old Humble pipeline station in Webster. We would sometimes play basketball with each other in somebody's backyard. I miss those old days.

Lennie Schmidt

There were others that played basketball at CCHS during the years 1958 to 1961. Paul Timmons, Norman Lundy, Bill Doty & Rick "the stick" Jones. I worked two jobs back in the old days and was on my night job when Clear Creek won the state championship (triple A) in 1963. I listened to it on my car radio. I wish i could remember the fellows name who had the winning shot. He was from League City.

Dan Jensen

Lennie, you should have read The Championship Year thread that was right on top of the recent comments when you posted.

The name of the hero who shot down South San Antonio with that magnificent corner shot in the waning moments of the semifinal game is spotlighted there.

debbie goodwin cooper

I remember Bennie Lenox I went to every game he played in high school and then to most of his games at A&M. My dad (George Goodwin) loved to watch that man play.

Jerry Cotten

I never saw Bennie Lenox play high school ball, but I do remember him playing at A&M, and he was a great one! I did see some of the other Lenox's play at the state tournament in the 60's. I attended several state tournaments from about '63 on, especially when my hometown Lamesa was playing. I have been to a couple of tournaments in the Irwin Center, but there was nothing that could compare to sitting on those hard wooden bleachers or hard boards in the upper deck,crowded shoulder to shoulder in a great noisy atmosphere with the crowd so close to the court; I can still smell the popcorn as you walked in the front doors! I remember one of the Lenox's using the backboard even on long jumpshots, and you don't see players using the backboard as much now.

Dan Jensen

If you are from Lamesa, you likely know my Baylor friend Eddy Spraberry. Also your Pat Fees was a good player at Baylor.

Dan Jensen

I am very displeased that Bennie Lenox was not even nominated for the all-century high school basketball team. I saw the list of nominees and Bennie was way better than several.

Buddy Carlisle and I have tried to track down an explanation and after considerable delay on the part of the University Interscholastic League, the sponsoring group, we finally got this unacceptable response:

"Information was compiled from UIL staff and archives along with input from the TABC (Texas Association of Basketball Coaches.

"As thorough as we attempted to be in all of our list for the sports, undoubtedly some very deserving players were left off. That was the main reason we allowed write-in candidates at all position for all the sports."

Dwayne "Curley" Lenox

As is always the case, ranking the best players of any sport in a particular era, college or high school is entirely subjective and/or biased based on individual opinions. Most members of the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches were not even born when some of the players in the 50's, 60's, and early 70's were at their best. As a result, the chances that any of the outstanding "older" players being nominated by members of the TABC has bee greatly lessened.

Personally, I like the members of the UIL staff and have had the opportunity to talk with many of them. The director, Charles Breithaupt, lived in Georgetown across the street from my daughter and her family. He let my grandson be the ball-boy at both the basketball and baseball state tournament games for three or four years. He is a man with a lot of class and is the only one on his staff that I would trust to nominate any player from a particular sport to be on a select all-century team. He is a walking encyclopedia of Texas high school sports. His memory is unbelievable. That alone would make him a reliable source to use when it came to nominating players for the 50's, 60,s and early 70's. If he was indeed a member of the selection committee, I believe he could have done a better job. The other staff members are too young to remember anything except the more recent history of high school sports. Therefore, I don't think they can be depended on for an unbiased opinion, either.

I haven't talked with Bennie about this issue but I'm sure it doesn't mean very much to him. He's happy with his memories of Clear Creek and Aggie basketball, and really tries to ignore other people's opinion.

For what it's worth, though, I took the opportunity to write his name in per the instructions. I don't know if he deserved to be on one of the teams, but I do think he deserved to be nominated. And that's my own selfish and, probably, biased opinion.

Dan Jensen

I was advised to contact Breithaupt about the nominating process. He did not respond and, after my second request, had his assistant
Contreras answer me.

Contreras said, "Information was compiled from UIL staff and archives along with input from the TABC (Texas Association of Basketball Coaches.

"As thorough as we attempted to be in all of our list for the sports, undoubtedly some very deserving players were left off. That was the main reason we allowed write-in candidates at all position for all the sports."

I am about as unimpressed with the UIL guys as I am their nominating process.

Bennie is one of the all-time greats and not to be even nominated is inexcusable.


Dan Jensen

Curley says he doesn't know if his brother Bennie should be on the top three teams or not but he wrote him in.

I would have to look at the entire list of nominees more closely to see if he should be on one of the teams or not. There are some really great names there.

But, I noted that Phil Reynolds of Waxahachie made the third team. He was from the same era as Bennie. I saw him play and he was a good guard but Bennie was definitely better.

When fans vote it is pretty much a popularity contest.
Knowledgeable observers should have been in charge.

Dan Jensen

And there is more disrespect toward Clear Creek athletes in the nominating process. It appears that track and field nominees were rated according to career best times.

I e-mailed the following to Peter Contreras, the UIL assistant director:

Here is an impressive list coached by Max Blansit. Times are for the mile although maybe one (1991) was in metrics. When did metrics come to Texas?

John McDaniel, 4:09.3 in 1972
Doug Tucker, 4:11.8 in 1979
Bryce Cramer, 4:12.6 in 1991
Mike McClendon, 4:15.8 in 1968

Converted to metrics, they would rank third, fourth, fifth and eighth on the list of nominees.

Here is the very inadequate response of Contreras: "Thank you for your interest and input. All times were considered. The UIL converted hand-held times to FAT times several years ago."

Dan Jensen

Here is something I received today regarding Bennie Lenox and the passage of time from Franklin McKinney, Class of 1955:

"Just talked to my sister (Wanda) and she is getting ready for her 50th class reunion this weekend. I asked about the basketball team in her senior year and she said a guy named Bennie Lenox was an All American but he was not good enough to win the state championship (like her brother did when he was only a sophomore). Boy, how time flies. It has been 50 years since Bennie played Wildcat basketball. I wonder if he has lost his shooting touch. At 72, I still shoot a basketball about as well as I did in high school!"

debbie goodwin cooper

Not sure who still gets on here but I just heard that Dr Tony Barcelona passed away today. Rosalee said that he went fast from kidney failure. That is what she told Joanne Rowe...Just thought I would post it on here..

Jim Finley

I found my way to your site doing a search for Paul Timmins. When he came to Texas A&M in the fall of 1961, he was married (Cookie) and lived in the other half of a duplex on Milam Street from my wife and me. Bennie Lennox lived a couple of doors down, so Coach Metcalf would show up in our neighborhood quite often.

I'm just trying to find out where Paul is now so I can contact him. It's been a VERY long time since I've seen him.

Jim Finley

Dan Jensen

You just needed to ask once. I can tell you're an Aggie. I have Paul's e-mail address but don't know if he wants it publicized in here. I will give him yours and he can contact you.

Dan Jensen

Other evidence that you are an Aggie. Bennie Lenox is an all-time great at your school and you don't even know how to spell his name. Just kidding. Kinda.

Raul E. Jimenez

I had a chance to watch and enjoy the A&M games in the years when, consecutively, we had Carroll Broussard, '62, and then Bennie Lennox and eventually John Beasley. Three great basketball players. I graduated in '61 but went on in Graduate School, Meteorology and stayed around A&M until 1965. I remember these three players: Broussard around 6-5, a good rebounder and scorer from anywhere. I once saw him score 37 or so against the Longhorns in Austin. Lennox would bring the ball down and often suddenly stop and shoot jump shots from what seemed like 25-30 feet out, and make them. He was unbelievable. John Beasley was a 6-9 guy who could rebound when he was close to the basket; often he was thirty feet out shooting a beautiful jump shot. I've continued watching Aggie Basketball. The game has changed. Nobody scores 50 points a game any more, but Lennox did, and he had a pretty good field goal percentage. To me he was the greatest player (dribbling, moving quickly, passing, and shooting) that I have ever seen at A&M, ever. Glad to see these posts about him. I too was wondering where he was and what happened to him. I remember Paul Timmons and Davey Johnson. Johnson of course went on to become a great Major League manager. I remember him with his hair buzzed down to nearly nothing. He was ahead of his time, in an era when athletes usually cut their hair in flat tops.

Dan Jensen

It's good to have you post here and you are encouraged to continue but on a Clear Creek board you really need to spell Lenox and Timmins correctly.

Jerry Cotten

I posted a statement about 2years ago about the Lenox boys. I'm from Lamesa you commented about Pat Fees playing at Lamesa & Baylor. He became a preacher in the Dallas area and he passed away about a couple of years ago. I was 1year older than him, so I got to watch him play from 7th-12th grades. Our legendary coach, O.W. Follis passed away. Our gym is named for him & his wife. He is still in the top20 in all time high school wins in the U.S. Never had a losing season in 38 years, never had a technical foul, always sat in his seat. I never heard him holler at a player. He wouldn't ever let any of his teams score over 100 pts. out of respect for the other coaches. Isaw where Coach Carlisle passed away, he must have been a good'un.

Jerry Cotten

I tried to send a post back to you 2 years ago, but the messages wouldn't ever go through.

Charles Carlson

Is Phillip Lenox of the Liberty Hill state finalist teams of 1987 & 88 kin to Bennie Lenox? Perhaps a son? Someone fill in the blanks about any possible connection between Phillip Lenox and Bennie Lenox.

Dan Jensen

Phillip is the son of Dwayne "Curley" Lenox and would be Bennie's nephew.

Tom Ballantyne

My name is Tom Ballantyne. I played at Bellaire High School (Houston) in 1967-68, and walked on to the Freshman Team at UT in 1968-69. So I played with Scooter, and was coached by Bennie. It was a rare privilege as I had patterned my entire game after his. Being a shooting guard, however, put me behind Scooter, Bennie's younger brother. Scooter was 6'3, and I was barely 6'1 (and 155 #'s).
For those who never saw Bennie play, he was essentially a white Dr. Jay. Like his younger brother Scooter, he could shoot the jump-shot from anywhere (and make it), but he was a phenomenal driver, and could take the ball to the hole (he was 6'4) and "float" forever. (Both Bennie and Scooter could jump, and Scooter could drive as well, but while he too had hang-time, Bennie would seemingly take off at the free-throw line and float all the way to the basket - a thing of beauty!)
I don't know who was on the All-Century Team (or whatever it was called), but Bennie Lennox was easily the greatest basketball player to play in the Southwest Conference in his day or before. Not only was he a prolific scorer, but his moves were incomparable, and to watch him play was to see basketball raised to an art form. He was the epitome of "poetry in motion." He was probably the greatest white player I ever saw play at any level. He probably wasn't the greatest defender, but he could do anything with the ball in his hands - a precursor to Pistol Pete Maravich. He was also a true gentleman, and it was a privilege to play for him at Texas.
Tom Ballantyne

Dan Jensen

This Bellaire guy is more profuse in his praise of Bennie Lenox than any Clear Creek fan. I don't recall Bennie floating but he had a plumb loverly jump shot and he did not reach 6-4 until after his playing days. He is our all-time great player. Regarding the all century team, he was not even nominated! This is a total disgrace and the committee ought to be ashamed. I sure wish Ballantyne had been on it! And Bellaire was once a power in the Houston area too. I miss those good old days. But, as Lynn Davis would say, they are gone with the wind and hiding in the tall grass.

Dwayne (Curley) Leox

Some things I did not know about Bennie. One is, I didn't know he could float all the way to the basket from the free throw line. However, I'm sure that even today he would probably tell anybody that would listen that he really could. In regard to the number of black players that are playing today. Bennie told me on more than one occasion that, if he was still playing, he would probable not be able to even get s respectable shot off. He was obviously referring to the dominating speed and quickness all the blacks possess. Most of us will agree that they have definitely changed the game in way the game is played today.

All that said, I am still a little biased about my brother. He was pretty good and could play with anybody.

Dan Jensen

Bennie Lenox could have played in any era. He would have done even better against improved competition. His best games were against good teams. Coach Carlisle would always employ his bench in blowouts and Bennie only averaged three quarters in his senior year. He still averaged 25 points. He would have been over 30 against a tougher schedule. Bennie was humble when he was the best player in Texas and he still is.

Edward Davis

Having been one who actually played with Bennie, I can certainly attest to his status as the best CCHS has ever produced. His jump shot was phenomenal even if it did not arc much on the way to the hoop. But it found the net more often than not. As far as floating, I do not remember much of that - mainly because it rarely ever came down to his having to drive or "float" in order to score. Also, I might have missed some of the latter because I was too busy passing the ball to him or watching the ball go through the bottom of the net. But I am sure if he had need to "float" he would have been a master of it.

Now, as far as Bennie being humble and a gentleman, I agree wholeheartedly with that assessment. I was fortunate to keep in touch with Bennie (and then wife Connie) after high school and even after we had both married. It was always an enjoyable experience. Even today, as we have had opportunities to visit with one another in both some good times and some sad ones, Bennie has remained the same. I have always been proud to have him as a teammate and a good friend.

Joddie Witte

WE MOVED TO SUN CITY, GEORGETOWN IN DECEMBER 2006. I RETIRED AS SUPT. OF SCHOOLS IN JUNE FOR THE SECOND TIME. AFTER 53 YRS, THOUGHT IT WAS TIME. HAVE TO SHARE A STORY WITH YOU GUYS ON BENNIE LENOX.I WENT INTO HOME DEPOT IN GEORGETOWN ONE DAY (2007) AND SAW A GUY ON THE OTHER END OF THE ENTRY ISLE THAT LOOKED FAMILIAR. AS I WALKED TOWARDS HIM WE MADE EYE CONTACT. I THINK WE BOTH RECOGNIZED EACH OTHER ABOUT THE SAME TIME. BENNIE SAID HE WAS JUST KEEPING HIMSELF BUSY AS A PART TIME EMPLOYEE. WE HAD A GOOD VISIT. NEVER GOT TO SEE HIM PLAY IN COLLEGE, HOWEVER HIS STATS CERTAINLY SPEAK FOR THEMSELVES.

WHEN I WAS AT WEBSTER HIGH, I PLAYED WITH BOONIE WILKENING WHO WAS A GREAT SHOOTER. I LATER PLAYED WITH HIM AT SOUTHWEST TEXAS WHERE HE WORE THE NETS OUT. IF I REMEMBER CORRECTLY, BENNIE SCORED 50 POINTS AGAINST TEXAS IN THE OLD GREGORY GYM IN A CONFERENCE GAME WHEN HE WAS PLAYING FOR TEXAS A&M. ALTHOUGH BOONIE WAS A GREAT JUMP SHOOTER, TO MY KNOWLEDGE, HE NEVER SCORED 50 POINTS IN A GAME. AS MOST OF YOU MAY KNOW, BOONIE PASSED AWAY ABOUT TWO YEARS AGO. DURING THOSE DAYS, WE HAD A NUMBER OF GOOD SHOOTERS INCLUDING CHARLES SHARP, A HOOK SHOT SPECIALIST AND FIRST TEAM ALL AMERICAN, RUDY DAVALOS, IST TEAM ALL AMERICAN, BOBBY ROBERTS, AN NAIA ALL AMERICAN, AND SEVERAL OTHER GOOD SHOOTERS. WE AVERAGED 92 POINTS A GAME AND WON THE NATIONAL CHAMPIONSHIP IN 1960. SHARP SCORED 48 POINTS IN THE CHAMPIONSHIP GAME.

EDWARD DAVIS IS RIGHT ON ABOUT BENNIE-HE IS A VERY HUMBLE GENTLEMAN. IN MY OPINION, GEORGE CARLISLE IS ONE OF THE MOST OUTSTANDING COACHES TO EVER COACH HIGH SCHOOL BASKETBALL IN THE STATE OF TEXAS. GEORGE AND I COMMUNICATED WITH EACH OTHER ON A REGULAR BASIS TILL THE TIME OF HIS DEATH. WE WERE ALL VERY FORTUNATE, ESPECIALLY MYSELF, TO HAVE HAD HIM AS A COACH AND MENTOR.

THE CLASS OF 1954 WEBSTER HIGH TEAM WENT
32-2 AND GOT BEAT IN THE REGIONAL FINALS BY ONE POINT BY LAMAR CONSOLIDATED ON A HALF COURT THROW AS THE BUZZER WENT OFF. DAN-I AM SURE THAT YOU REMEMBER THAT GAME. EARLIER IN THE YEAR, WE BEAT LAMAR CONSOLIDATED IN THE FINALS OF THEIR TOURNAMENT IN A VERY CLOSE GAME. TEMPLE TUCKER AND BOBBY BRASHER (WHO BOTH WENT TO RICE) AND THE BOWIE JACKRABBITS WON STATE THAT YEAR.

Dan Jensen

I did not see that game since I was in college then. I do not remember a half court shot and a newspaper article on the game does not mention it.

I do know that the team had a 31-2 record that year. We lost in the first game of the regionals and did not play for the championship.

In the championship game, Lamar Consolidated beat Mercedes by one point on a shot in the last seven seconds.

Dan Jensen

When I originated this thread over nine years ago, the title was meant as a joke because many, many fans would remember our greatest player. But time marches on and I now realize that the current Wildcats probably have no knowledge of him. It's sad but it is reality.

Rennie Baker

I was at Texas when Bennie Lenox coached the Freshman Team---not naming him the head coach probably cost Texas numerous final four appearances---he could coach and recruit--

Peggy Machol-Bassett

Rest in eternity, Bennie. Your fellow Wildcats and Aggies will take it from here.

JODDIE W WITTE

IT IS HARD TO BELIEVE THAT BENNIE IS NOT LONGER WITH US. ALTHOUGH BENNIE AND I DID NOT PLAY DURING THE SAME ERA, BENNIE WAS A PERSON THAT I ADMIRED FOR MANY YEARS. WHEN WE CROSSED PATHS, IT WAS LIKE BENNIE AND I HAD KNOWN EACH OTHER FOR MANY DECADES. ALTHOUGH HE WAS A GREAT BASKETBALL PLAYER, HE WAS ALSO AN OUTSTANDING PERSON WHO WAS NOT A STRANGER TO ANYONE. I AGREE THAT HE WAS WITH0UT A SHADOW OF A DOUBT, THE GREATEST BASKETBALL PLAYER TO HIT THE HARDWOODS IN CLEAR CREEK BASKETBALL HISTORY, AND IN ADDITION, A SUPER WONDERFUL CARING PERSON. GOD BLESS THE LENNOX FAMILY.

Sherryjane (Beacom) Cooke

I graduated in 1968, so I did not know Bennie, but seeing the comment threads, he must have been a wonderful person and a superstar in Clear Creek basketball history. Knowing Scooter and Ronnie Lenox,I'm sure they inherited their kindness and fantastic athletic skills from Bennie. My prayers to the Lenox family. God Bless them all.

Mike Miller

Dwayne (Curley) Lenox passed away this last weekend. I never saw him play basketball but I worked for him as a teacher in Georgetown and he mentored me while I was preparing to be an administrator. He was an outstanding principal and person and he will be greatly missed.
