Reggie Miller To Be Inducted Into Pac-10 Hall of Honor
Feb. 5, 2010
The Pac-10 Conference will honor 10 former student-athletes, including UCLA's Reggie Miller, with their induction into the Pac-10 Men's Basketball Hall of Honor during the 2010 Pacific Life Pac-10 Men's Basketball Tournament. The induction ceremony will take place on Saturday, March 13 during the Pac-10 Hall of Honor luncheon.
Miller was a point-producing machine during his four-year Bruin career (1984-87), finishing his career as the school's second all-time scorer (2,095 points) behind only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar's 2,325 points (he is now tied for third on that list).
His 202 free throws in 1986 are a UCLA single-season mark. Miller's best scoring output came on Feb. 28, 1987, when he totaled 42 points, including a school-record 33 in the second half to help UCLA defeat defending NCAA champion Louisville, 99-86. He finished his career with 47-career 20-point games (tied for No. 3 in UCLA history) and 16-career 30-point contests (No. 2 in UCLA annals).
A two-time first team All-Pac-10 performer, Miller led the Bruins to the school's first-ever NIT Championship in 1985, earning NIT's Most Outstanding Player award along the way, and the first-ever Pac-10 Tournament championship in 1987.
A 1987 first round selection by the Indiana Pacers with the 11th pick, Miller played his entire 18-year career with Indiana, playing more games (1,323) with the same team than all but two players in league history. He is the NBA record-holder for most three-pointers in a career (2,560) and was a member of the Gold Medal winning USA Men's Basketball team in 1996 at the Summer Olympics Games in Atlanta, Ga. He also played for Team USA at the 1994 (Gold Medal) and 2002 World Championships.
Those other individuals to be inducted include: Mike Bibby (Arizona), Jeremy Veal (Arizona State), Earl Robinson (California), Kenya Wilkins (Oregon), Dave Gambee (Oregon State), John Arrillaga (Stanford), John Block (USC), Eldridge Recasner (Washington) and Paul Lindemann (Washington State).
