    NEWTON, Kan. – Former University of Colorado basketball great Leason Horton "Pete" McCloud died earlier this week (Monday, June 17) at the Newton Medical Center. He was 94.

    Born Dec. 29, 1918, to Sidney and Elizabeth McCloud in Neosho, Mo., McCloud was number six of eight boys.

    Known for his silky-smooth shot, a great passer and rebounder, McCloud is one of CU men’s basketball’s eight all-Americans (1942). He played from 1939-42 under head coach Forrest “Frosty” Cox.
