Former Washington Husky Eldridge Recasner will be inducted in the Pac-10 Men’s Basketball Hall of Honor on March 13, 2010.
Recasner, a four-year starter and three-year captain, is fifth on UW’s all-time scoring list with 1,700 points. He was selected to the all-conference team in 1988, ’89 and ’90. Recasner holds the team record for most consecutive free throws made with 33.
The Pac-10 hasn’t released the full list of 2010 inductees. In past years, each conference school had an inductee. Last season, Detlef Schrempf represented Washington..
A BRIEF INTERVIEW WITH RECASNER:
(How do you feel?) “It’s nice to be recognized for what you did. It’s a huge honor. I believe Chris Welp is in there. Detlef Schrempf, James Edwards and Steve Hawes. That’s some of the greatest players in the history of the school and to have my name up there with those guys is pretty special.”
(How does one get inducted?) “I have no idea. I just got a call out of the blue one day. I was fishing with my father-in-law and (coach Lorenzo Romar) called me and said we nominated you for the Pac-10 Hall of Honor and I was like what. I thought it was something they had to vote on. ”
