The Texas Western great serves the San Antonio community
During last night’s game (which if you missed it, you weren’t missing much) there was one shining moment worthy of the telecast. The Spurs aired a video on Nevil Shed, the Spurs basketball camp director.
In addition to his role with the Spurs, Shed serves as a motivational speaker.
Nevil was one of the members of the 1966 NCAA Men’s Division I Basketball Tournament national championship team, the Texas Western Miners. The Miners made history when their starting line-up featured African-American players. Their story was set to celluloid in the 2006 Glory Road which featured Al Shearer as Nevil “The Shadow” Shed.
Unfortunately, Shed injured himself during NBA training camp and never played professionally.
