James played for the 1971-72 NCAA Tournament basketball team as well as the NIT team of 1972-73. James averaged 8.8 points per game in 1971-72, fifth on a 23-4 Herd team that was ranked as high as eighth nationally and finished No. 12 in the final AP and UPI polls.

The Herd was 20-7 under first-year head coach Bob Daniels, winning its final nine games of the regular season. With eligibility remaining, he joined the Marshall football team as a receiver in 1973 and caught nine passes for 78 yards, good for fifth-most that season.

For his efforts as an outstanding high school basketball student-athlete in his home state of Indiana, he was named to the state’s Basketball Hall of Fame Silver Anniversary team in 1994.
