Lars Hansen gets Hall of Fame honors

Former Husky center Lars Hansen, who played for some of the great Marv Harshman teams of the mid-1970s, was inducted into the Canadian Basketball Hall of Fame last month.
Hansen not only played for the Huskies but was also briefly a member of the Sonics during their NBA title season of 1978-79.
He recently sent along this note with a message that he said he wanted to share with all Seattle fans, so I’ll just pass it along as is:
Dear Bob,
On July 19th, 2007, I was inducted into the Canadian Basketball Hall of
Fame. I am writing you this letter to express my sincere thanks and
gratitude. The University of Washington Basketball Program, the Seattle
Supersonics and the City of Seattle are largely responsible for this great
Honor. My years playing for the Huskies and my contribution to the 1979
Sonics NBA Chamionship Team shaped me, not only as a player but also, as a
person. I will always owe a great debt of gratitude to the many people in
Seattle, who helped me along the way. The highlight of the evening was the
standing ovation received by my University of Washington Coach, Marv
Harshman. I am so very proud that he was willing and able to make the long
journey up to Vancouver, BC to attend the event. Can you please broadcast
this message so that people in Seattle will know how much they mean to me.
Sincerely,
Lars Hansen.
PS — The Husky t-shirt, Coach Romar gifted to me for the Hall of Fame
Induction will be worn on every game day – this coming basketball season.
GO DAWGS!
