Mitchell to be Inducted into Ohio Basketball Hall of Fame

Louis A. Mitchell, a Denison University Life Trustee and a member of the Class of 1957, will be inducted into the Ohio Basketball Hall of Fame during its fourth annual banquet and ceremony on May 30 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center.

Hall of Fame recognition is reserved for those men and women who have best exemplified the highest traditions and strengths of basketball. Mitchell’s dedication to the sport—as well as to the community, his profession, and to his alma mater—have been demonstrated by his outstanding achievements, on and off the hardwoods.

Mitchell first took the basketball spotlight as a Newark High School standout in the early 1950s. By 1957, when he graduated from Denison with a Bachelor of Science in physical education, he held 30 university records as a scorer and rebounder while averaging more than 20 points and 15 rebounds per game throughout his four-year varsity career. He also held numerous Ohio Athletic Conference records.
