Rickey Brown and Ray White were a fearsome duo for the Mississippi State Bulldogs in the late 1970s. White was a guard who could drop a ton of points on the scoreboard. And Brown did the work down low. Brown is the 4th leading scorer in school history, and also one of the best rebounders. He averaged 17.2 points a game in his four seasons and 10.2 rebounds a game. He was named to the All-SEC team three times in his playing career with the Bulldogs.
