Carl Fox lettered in basketball at SMS four years and was one of few Bruin cagers ever to gain all-conference honors three years in a row. He teamed with Carl Davis to form a devastating forward combination on some potent SMS teams. A native of Powell, Missouri, Fox was the Bear captain the year SMS turned back the Arkansas Razorbacks, one of two seasons he held that honor. Fox was a member of the Bruins’ first MIAA championship team in 1928 under Coach Andy McDonald as the Bears won 18 of 22 games. Fox was also noted for his defensive abilities on the hardwoods. He was the third leading scorer in the conference in 1927 for his first all-state selection and gained the additional honor of being selected as captain of the all-state team in 1929.
