Marquette Career

Pat averaged 5.8 points per game during the 1966-67 season. He averaged 10 points per game the following year, but is probably best known for fighting with the DePaul Blue Demons' second leading scorer and rebounder, Bob Zoretich, in a 1968 game at DePaul's Alumni Hall. Both were ejected and this incident prompted DePaul coach Ray Meyer to state that MU lost a player “who couldn't throw a ball in the ocean if he were standing on the beach.” Marquette coach Al McGuire then proceeded to set up a photo session with Pat Smith standing on the shore of Lake Michigan, trying to throw the ball into the lake (see above picture).
