Bob Pritchett was the 1965-66 Junior College Player of the Year at Vincennes when head coach Sonny Allen recruited him to Old Dominion. He appeared in 50 games during his two seasons, averaging 22.2 points as a junior and 25.4 as a senior. His 25.4 points per game is second only to Leo Anthony's 31.0 points per game for a single season.

Although he played in only 50 games, Pritchett scored 1,188 career points. He remains today as ODU's single game scoring leader having poured in 67 points against Richmond Professional Institute on Feb. 14, 1968. He also scored 47 points against Hampden-Sydney in the same season.

Pritchett earned honorable mention All-American honors in 1967-68. He was also All-Mason Dixon Conference selection in 1967.

Bob's 1967-68 Monarch squad is still the highest scoring single season team in ODU history. The team of Pritchett, Harry Lozon, Dick St. Clair, Buttons Speakes and Ron Drews averaged 98.2 points per game. He now joins all those teammates in the ODU Hall.

Pritchett served as Superintendent with Ohio Youth services assigned to the Scioto Ohio Corrections Facilty. He retired from the Ohio Youth services in 2006.

Pritchett was inducted into the ODU Sports Hall of Fame on April 29, 2008.
