Charles D. "Chuck" Hyatt

One of basketball's original sharpshooters, Chuck Hyatt earned All-America honors throughout his college and AAU career. Under Hall of Fame coach Henry Clifford Carlson, Hyatt scored an exceptional 880 points in three years playing at the University of Pittsburgh. The three-time All-America led the Panthers to the 1928 and 1930 national championships. In the 1930 championship game, Hyatt scored 27 points against fellow Hall of Famer John "Cat" Thompson and Montana State, including a last second basket in a 37-36 Pittsburgh victory. In 1930 he led the nation in scoring with a 12.6 point per game average. Named the Helms Foundation Player of the Year in 1930, Hyatt enjoyed a productive Amateur Athletic Union career with the Diamond Oilers, Universal Pictures, and the Phillips 66ers, earning seven more All-America honors. Hyatt won three AAU national championships as well.
