"Twogie," as he was known around Troy, sits only behind his mentor Sam Barry on the Trojan men's hoops all-time wins list with a 251-179 career record.  He captured three conference crowns and recorded 13 winning seasons during his 16-year tenure as the head coach.

Like Barry, Twogood was a Midwest guy who fell in love with USC.  He was a three-sport athlete at Iowa before coaching both basketball and baseball as an assistant at Troy.

After retiring from the sidelines, Twogood served as an assistant athletic director at USC.  The World War II veteran of the Navy passed away in 1972 at the age of 64.
