Nov. 7, 2002

LOS ANGELES (AP) - Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, who led UCLA to three national championships in the 1960s, and Tex Winter, a former USC player who innovated the triangle offense, are among 10 inductees to the Pacific-10 Conference basketball hall of honor.

Abdul-Jabbar later played 20 years in the NBA, where he is the only six-time MVP.

Winter, 80, is in his fourth season as a Los Angeles Lakers assistant and his 56th consecutive season as either a college or pro coach.

The other honorees to be inducted during the men's Pac-10 tournament in March are:

  • Steve Kerr of Arizona, whose 53.7 percent 3-point shooting average in 1988 remains a Pac-10 record. He played on four NBA title teams with Chicago and San Antonio.

  • Todd Lichti of Stanford, the Cardinal's scoring leader with 2,336 career points and Pac-10 career 3-point field-goal percentage leader at .477.

  • Kevin Johnson of California, who had the first triple-double in Pac-10 history. He is Cal's career leader in scoring, assists and steals.

  • Ned Wulk, who had a 406-272 record during 25 years as Arizona State coach. The Sun Devils' court is named for him.

  • Howard Hobson, who coached Oregon for 11 years and compiled a 212-124 record, the best mark in school history.

  • Amory 'Slats' Gill, who had a 599-392 record as Oregon State's coach. His 276 conference wins are second only to John Wooden. The Beavers' arena is named for him.

  • Marv Harshman, who compiled 654 wins during 40 years of coaching at Washington and Washington State. He was the coach of the year in 1984 when the Huskies reached the NCAA tournament's round of 16.

  • Jack Friel, who won 872 games as Washington State coach from 1928-58. He was instrumental in the adoption of the 'one-and-one' rule for free throws.
