Rick Suder  was one of the best pure marksmen in Beaver County basketball history. His sweet shooting touch was a highlight on arguably Centerís best ever cage team, and he continued his impressive career at Duquesne University. Center went 22-6 in Rickís junior year, the most wins ever by a Trojan squad, and Rick earned All Section honors. Rick set school records for free throw shooting in a game (12 for 12) and consecutive foul shots made (23) his senior year. He scored 40 points in a win over Montour and was named Las Vegas Nike Prep Classic All Tournament when Center won three of its four games in that national tournament. Rick was All Section as a senior and was named to the Post-Gazette Fabulous Five and the Pittsburgh Press Finest Five. He finished his high school career with 1231 points, ranking him third on Centerís all time scoring list. Rick was also the schoolís first ever participant in the feature game of the Roundball Classic. He took his All State honorable mention to Duquesne University, where he won the Chuck Cooper Award as the teamís Outstanding Underclassman as a sophomore. As a junior, Rick as the second leading scorer in the Atlantic 10 conference, averaging 17.7 points per game and was named to the All Conference squad. His senior season saw him lead the Atlantic 10 in scoring with 20.4 points per game, and he received recognition as a team MVP award and on the All Conference team. Rick finished his college career with 1459 points, ranking in the top ten in Duquesne University history, and secured season and career free throw records, averaging a gaudy 91.8 percent his senior season and 88.5 his career. Rick was named to the Duquesne University Hall of Fame in 1994. Rick moved to Indianapolis, where he was self employed with professional athletes in various capacities, including charitable work.
