Kevin King was a swingman for Syracuse basketball for three seasons. He was known as a player who made things happen on the court [1]. He was a decent passer, though a poor free throw shooter.

King started his collegiate career at LaSalle. He transferred to Syracuse after his freshman season. He would not be eligible to play at Syracuse until the second semester of his sophomore year. He would start four games once he was eligible, before eventually settling into one of the top reserve positions.

King would be the sixth man on Syracuse's 1975 Final Four team. He played very well in the NCAA tournament scoring 12 points versus North Carolina and 10 points against Kansas State.

King would be a starter at the beginning of his senior season. However, after four games he lost his starting position to Ross Kindel. Syracuse had an abundance of players at the guard and forward position, and King saw his playing time dwindle as the younger players got more playing time.

King would work for Onondaga County's Child Protective Services in the 1980s [1].
