Clint Hall: West star dies

Staff report
Former West Rowan basketball standout Clint Hall’s obituary appeared in Monday’s edition of the Post.
Hall, 6-foot-5, was an all-county pick in 1971 and 1972.
He played in a basketball era dominated by coach Bob Pharr’s great Salisbury teams, but the Falcons, led by Hall, made their share of noise during the 1971-72 season.
Coach Harold Higgins’ squad was 19-7 in 1971-72, with three losses coming to a 25-2 Salisbury team.
West won the NPC regular-season championship with a 14-2 record, edged North Rowan 45-43 for the NPC tournament championship, beat Crest in a WNCHSAA quarterfinal and finally lost to Morganton 48-47 in a semifinal.
Hall averaged a team-high 13.8 points as a junior and put up 16.4 points and 15.7 rebounds per game as a senior. His senior season, Hall led West in scoring 16 times and in rebounding 23 times.
Hall enjoyed a 30-point game against Davie County and pulled down 29 rebounds in one amazing outing against Mooresville.
Hall scored 896 points in three varsity seasons and was the school’s No. 2 all-time scorer when he graduated. He’s now 14th on the all-time chart.
Hall, West’s first outstanding African-American basketball player, received many accolades in 1972. He was named Honorable Mention All-State by the Greensboro Daily News and All-Northwest North Carolina by the Winston-Salem Journal, and he played in the Marion Citivan Classic all-star game.
Ranking 13th on West’s career scoring list with 978 points is Quincy Hall, Clint’s son. Quincy was a key player on West teams that won conference titles in 1993, 1994 and 1995.
