Ron Huery’s Career Highlights
In Richardson’s first season as the Razorbacks’ head coach in 1985–86, Huery’s pledge out of Whitehaven High School reportedly opened the way for Arkansas to get additional well-known players, particularly from Memphis.
Huery was Mr. Basketball in Tennessee that year, a McDonald’s All-American, and Richardson’s first significant signee at Arkansas.
Huery was the first of several Memphis-born players that Richardson recruited, following in the footsteps of Todd Day, Arlyn Bowers, Clyde Fletcher, Corey Beck, Dwight Stewart, and Elmer Martin.
All three participated on Final Four squads between 1990 and 1995, while Beck and Stewart started the 1994 NCAA Tournament title game between the Razorbacks and Duke, which they won 76-72.
Because of Ron Huery, Richardson claimed, “Once we had Ron, it made it a little bit easier for me to go into Memphis and get additional players to come out.”
“Ron was not only a person for whom I desired the best, but also a person for whom I, my family, and his teammates had a great deal of affection.”
Huery led Richardson’s first NCAA Tournament squad in scoring in 1987–88, averaging 13.4 points per game while shooting 45.4% from the field and earning All–SWC honors. In Cincinnati that year, he led the Razorbacks with 21 points in a first-round NCAA Tournament loss to Villanova.
