Bob Shaddock played basketball for Syracuse for three seasons. He was a starter for part of his junior year, and most of his senior season.

Bob ShaddockShaddock was a rarely used reserve player his sophomore season, playing only two games and not scoring. He would get his first start against Princeton his junior season as the Orangemen had lost three games and coach Lew Andreas wanted to shake up the lineup. The Orange would win the game and would go on a modest winning streak, with Shaddock starting several of those games.

Shaddock was a quick player who did a good just at playing in the up tempo scoring. During his senior season, Lou Andreas teamed Shaddock with freshman sensation Billy Gabor to quicken the pace of the Syracuse games. The Orangemen, who had started the season at 1-6, would finish strong at 9-4 with the increased scoring output. The faster tempo games had some impact on individual scoring too. Shaddock would become the first Syracuse player to score more than 30 points in a game, when he scored 33 against Colgate on February 27, 1943.

World War II was in full force, and Shaddock was part of the Army reserve. Shaddock, along with several teammates would miss the last scheduled game of the year, as they entered the Army for the war effort. He would finish his senior year as the season's second leading scoring behind Gabor.

Following the war, Shaddock played briefly with the Syracuse Nationals in the NBA in 1947. He also played in the New York State Players League for the Cohoes Mastodons and Gloversville Glovers in the 1946-47 season.
