Former ASU Men's Basketball Standout Jeremy Veal Honored
Feb. 10, 2010
Former Sun Devil standout guard Jeremy Veal is one of 10 former student-athletes and coaches who will be inducted into the Pac-10 Basketball Hall of Honor this March. The ceremony will take place March 13 during the Pac-10 Hall of Honor luncheon at the Pacific Life Pac-10 Men's Basketball Tournament in Los Angeles, Calif.
Veal finished his four-year career as the Sun Devils' all-time leading scorer with 1,984 points. He earned All-Pac-10 honors twice, becoming the fourth Sun Devil to accomplish this feat. Veal became just the fourth Pac-10 player to notch 1,900 points and 400 assists (413) in a career, joining Sean Elliot, Ron Lee and Gary Payton. After never missing a game in his 122-game career, Veal finished his career with 46 20-point games and five 30-point outings.
Helping ASU advance to the Sweet Sixteen as a freshman in 1994-95, Veal tied the program's freshman record of games played (33). As a junior, he was one of two Pac-10 players to rank among the conference leaders in scoring, assists, three-point percentage and free throw percentage. In 1998, he participated in the NABC All-Star Game at the Final Four in San Antonio.
Veal, who will be the ninth ASU player inducted into the Pac-10 Basketball Hall of Honor, joins Byron Scott (2002), Ned Wulk ('03), Lafayette 'Fat' Lever ('04), Joe Caldwell ('05), Lionel Hollins ('06), Eddie House ('07), Alton Lister ('08) and Royce Youree ('09).
