Flournoy came to Texas Western from Gary, Indiana in 1962 and was an early recruit of legendary Miners coach Don Haskins. From 1963-66, Flournoy was part of some of TWC's most memorable teams. He averaged 5.3 points and 7.9 rebounds as a sophomore, 6.8 points and 11.8 rebounds as a junior, and 8.3 points and 10.7 rebounds per game as a senior. His action shot rebounding against Kentucky's Pat Riley is the infamous cover photo for the iconic Sports Illustrated issue recapping their historic national championship win.
