Dave Wohl led the University of Pennsylvania into the 1970s, its decade of fame. His first year playing varsity, as a sophomore, Wohl led the Quakers with 16.1 points per game and 91 assists. His junior season, Wohl dished 3.8 assists per game; passing 5.2 assists per game in 1971, his senior season. During those two years, Wohl amassed 823 points and raised his free-throw percentage to 83.7 percent. For his career, Wohl averaged 15.1 points per game, and his total of 345 assists is still fourth all-time at Penn. Along with fellow inductee Steve Bilsky, the tandem formed one of the best backcourts in Philadelphia Big 5 history.
Wohl was also an integral part of the No. 3-ranked Penn Quakers of 1971, who went to the Eastern Regional finals of the NCAA tournament. During his three years on the varsity squad, the Quakers compiled a 68-13 record (.840 winning percentage), including just one regular-season loss in his final two seasons.
A member of the Big 5 Hall of Fame since 1975, Wohl played for seven years professionally and was a head coach for the New Jersey Nets for three seasons.
