The Pac-12 Conference will honor 11 former student-athletes and one former coach with their induction into the Pac-12 Men’s Basketball Hall of Honor this year. Our very own, Shareef Abdur-Rahim, is one of those honorees.
Although he only played one season for the Golden Bears, Abdur-Rahim left his legacy in the program. In his collegiate debut, he scored 33 points and grabbed nine rebounds against Northern Arizona. He surpassed 20 points 15 times, including four games with 30 or more points. He received the 1996 National Freshman of the Year and was named to five All-American teams. He was the first freshman in history to be voted the Pac-10 Player of the Year. Congrats Shareef!
The induction will occur on Saturday, March 16, during a ceremony prior to the Championship Game at the 2013 Pac-12 Men’s Basketball Tournament held at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
