Chico Vaughn

Template:Infobox NBA biography Charles "Chico" Vaughn (February 19, 1940 – October 25, 2013) was an American basketball player. At 6'2", he played the guard position.

Vaughn is the highest scorer in Illinois high school boy's basketball, tallying 3,358 points during his career at Tamms High School (1954–1958). Vaughn had an unorthodox behind the head release that made his shot difficult to block.

After attending Southern Illinois University, Vaughn played five seasons (1962–67) in the National Basketball Association as a member of the St. Louis Hawks and Detroit Pistons. He joined the rival American Basketball Association in 1967 and played three seasons there as a member of the Pittsburgh/Minnesota Pipers. Vaughn was the fourth leading scorer (19.9 points per game) on the 1967-68 Pipers team which won the 1968 ABA Championship.

Vaughn died on October 26, 2013 of cancer at the age of 73.[1]
