Wichita State celebrates life of Dave Stallworth

WICHITA, Kan. (KSNW) – Family, friends, and former teammates celebrated the life of Dave Stallworth Friday night at Koch Arena. The former Shocker basketball player passed away last week at the age of 75.

Nicknamed “the Rave,” Mr. Stallworth was a three-time All-American for the Shockers over parts of four seasons from 1961-65. He led the program to its first-ever NCAA Tournament appearance in 1964, and his No. 42 jersey is one of five hanging from the rafters of Charles Koch Arena.
