TSU Basketball's all-time leading scorer, Dr. Dick "Skull" Barnett was recently highlighted on MSG ProFiles.

Barnett, a TSU Hall-of-Famer, is featured in a video produced by Madison Square Garden, Inc. (MSG) and the NBA's New York Knicks.

As a collegian, Barnett led Tennessee A&I State to three consecutive NAIA Titles (1956-57, 57-58 and 58-59). His trademark "Fall-back" jumper propelled him to stardom and had his jersey retired at both Tennessee State and in Madison Square Garden with the Knicks.

His number 35 jersey is presently the only jersey retired at Tennessee State University.

Barnett launches his patent fall-back jumper in the 1975 NBA Finals over NBA Hall of Famer Wilt Chamberlin.
