Don Pickard was a smooth shooting forward for Syracuse basketball for three seasons.

Pickard was a reserve forward his sophomore season. He did not play much early in the season, but proved his value and became one of the top reserves in the second half.

He continued into his junior season as a reserve. However, Johnny DeYoung would hurt his leg, and Pickard would step into the starting lineup. Pickard did not disappoint anyone as he provided a strong scoring presence for the Orangemen with his smooth perimeter shooting. He would lead the team with 16 points in a big game over Cornell, and later that season he scored 22 points against Buffalo. Though he did not start the first seven games of the season, Pickard would finish second on the team in scoring behind Ronnie Phillips.

Pickard was entrenched as a starting forward his senior year. He and DeYoung provided a solid scoring tandem up front, helping the Orangemen to a 15-2 season.
