Who is Hal Lear?
A 6'0" guard, Lear starred at Temple University during the 1950s. He earned the NCAA Basketball Tournament Most Outstanding Player in 1956 after leading Temple to the Final Four, where they lost to the University of Iowa.
After college, Lear was selected by the Philadelphia Warriors with the eighth pick of the 1956 NBA Draft. His NBA career was brief, however: he appeared in just three games during the 1956-57 NBA season and scored four points.
