Texas Tech Hall of Famer Dub Malaise Passed Away at 76
Dub Malaise was an inaugural member of the Texas Tech Ring of Honor and is one of the most prolific scorers in Texas Tech history. He passed away Sunday at the age of 76.
“We were sad to learn today of the passing of Dub Malaise,” said Rodney Allison, executive director of the Double T Varsity Club. “To this day, Dub remains one of the top basketball players in our history and was a deserving choice for the Ring of Honor. Dub always spoke well of his time as a Red Raider, and it was great every time we were able to welcome him back to campus. He will definitely be missed.”
Malaise played at Texas Tech from 1964 to 1966 and was a two-time All-American as a Red Raider. He was also a three-time All-Southwest Conference first-team honoree as well as being the SWC Player of the year as a Junior averaging nearly 24 points per game without the three-point line.
Malaise owns the single-game record for points with 50 against the Longhorns in 1966. Malaise had four career games with at least 40 points, he's one of only two Red Raiders to ever score 40 points in a game along with Rick Bullock. Malaise also has more 30 point games than any other Red Raider with 13.
According to TexasTech.com, "Malaise was inducted into the Texas Tech Hall of Fame in 1984 and the Southwest Conference Hall of Fame in 2014. He was later enshrined in the Texas Tech Ring of Honor in 2019 where he joined the likes of Rick Bullock, Andre Emmett and Jim Reed as part of the inaugural induction class that represents the top men’s basketball athletes in program history."
