Alphonso Gene Ford (October 31, 1971 – September 4, 2004) was an American professional basketball player. A 1.93 m (6 ft 4 in) tall shooting guard, he was one of the greatest scorers in college basketball history. After a short stint in the NBA, Ford played professionally in Europe. In the Euroleague he confirmed his tremendous scoring ability and became a reference in the matter, notwithstanding his chronic health issues. The competition's leading scorer award bears his name in his honor.
