Saw him play against St Louis U in 62. Didn't look to score, good point guard, cat quick. It was always 5 on 4 and you had the 4 because Yates would take your best player and stone cold shut him down. Great defensive player.
First meet Yates and Jimmy Collins at the old Chancellor Inn during the IHSA boys basketball tourney in the late 70s....TY was a good guy and helped bring the basketball program back to relevancy under coach Henson.....RIP and prayers to the family
