Mekhi Lairy: 5 feet, 8 inches and one of the most prolific scorers in Miami history

At 5 feet 8 inches, Mekhi Lairy is the shortest basketball player in the Mid-American Conference (MAC), and one of the shortest players in college basketball. At 145 pounds, he’s one of the lightest too. Throughout his career, Lairy has always played against taller opponents. His height has always been a problem, but it hasn’t stopped him from scoring 1573 points and counting at Miami, good for sixth all time among Miami University basketball players. He’s still not done.

William Snavely, then an associate professor of management and now the mayor of Oxford, wrote this in a letter to the editor: “I suggest we move the discussion to what the change will be rather than if we should change. To begin that discussion, consider changing to the ‘Redhawks.’”
