Listing Kevin Stacom as Ernie DiGregorio's backcourt mate unfairly undervalues the career of one of PC's greatest guards. A transfer from the school that gave the Friars Joe Mullaney (Holy Cross), Stacom was a two-time Defensive Player of the Year. He was also one of the most consistent and effective shooters ever at PC, netting a .527 career field goal percentage, tops among guards. He was a Second Team All-American as a senior who played in the 1973 World University Games. He took over the Friar offense as a senior after DiGregorio graduated.
Stacom was a second round draft choice of the Boston Celtics in 1974. He played six seasons (1974-1979; 1981-1982) in the NBA as a member of the Celtics, Indiana Pacers, and Milwaukee Bucks. He averaged 5.1 points per game in his career and won a league championship with Boston in 1976.
