Ellis was a standout Morehouse College guard, who went on to an acclaimed basketball career and a wealth of coaching and management experience at the professional league level. As the only Morehouse athlete to have his jersey number retired after a collegiate basketball career averaging more than 24 points per game in four years and leading Morehouse to the 1989-90 NCAA Division II Final Four.
