Elected into the FSU Hall of Fame in 1988
One of the most prolific scorers in Florida State basketball history, Ron King helped lead FSU to its first appearance in the Final Four, and ultimately the national championship game with UCLA.

From 1970-73, King's jump shot netted 1,252 points for the Seminoles. After scoring 35.7 points per game for the freshman team, his sophomore average of 22.7 points per game is still the third best single season average in FSU history. A 46 point outing against Georgia Southern that season still remains the top FSU single game scoring mark.

King averaged 17.9 points as a junior in 1971-72 in what was the Seminoles' all-time storybook season - a 27-6 record and the nation's runner up title. King was the third leading scorer in the NCAA Tournament with 92 points in five games, and his 27 points against UCLA in the final helped him to a spot on the All-Tournament team.

Although the 6-4 swingman average 19.6 points per game in his career, the fourth best mark ever at FSU, his scoring total is just 10th on the all-time list. An expected great senior season was cut short when King broke his leg after six games.
