Former Washington coach Tex Winter is one of eight inductees that will be enshrined into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame this year.
Winter was the 13th coach in Husky history. He spent three season at Washington from 1969-1971 and compiled a 45-35 career mark. The Huskies were .500 or better during each of his three seasons (13-13, 1969; 17-9, 1970; 15-13, 1971).
He recorded 454 victories in his college career that included stops at Marquette (1952-53), Kansas State (1954-68), Washington (1969-71), Northwestern (1974-78) and Long Beach State (1979-83).
Winter is considered the architect of the triangle offense and as an assistant coach, he helped the Chicago Bulls and Los Angeles Lakers to a combined 10 NBA Championships.
The 2010 induction ceremonies will be held Nov. 21, 2010 at the College Basketball Experience (CBE) and the historic Midland Theatre in Kansas City, Mo.
The other enshrinees include: Duke’s Christian Laettner, UCLA’s Sidney Wicks, former coach Dave Whitney, NCAA executive Tom Jernsteldt and former Big Eight and Big Ten Conference commissioner Wayne Duke. Jerry West and David Thompson, two of basketball’s all-time brightest stars, will be recognized as members of the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame’s founding class.
AROUND THE PAC-10:
— In Pullman, they’re counting down the minutes until Saturday’s Washington-Washington State game, which is also Senior Night for the Cougars.
— Arizona coach Sean Miller talks favorably about the NIT. He tells the Daily Star: “I would be very interested in the NIT. I don’t blame you guys for not being up on that since we’ve been in the (NCAA) tournament for so long. The NIT changed in the last several years. It’s no longer a political tournament, not that it always was. Sometimes it favored a program that could seat more people.”
— Things got a little easier for Oregon and Oregon State because UCLA freshman F Reeves Nelson will not play this week after he underwent laser surgery to repair a slightly torn retina in his left eye.
— Backup G LeKendric Longmire returns to Oregon after missing five consecutive games due to academic issues. He says he’ll be available for the rest of the season..
— UCLA senior Michael Roll is counting down the days in his senior season. He’ll play his last game at Pauley Pavilion on Saturday.
— USC is 7-1 against the Pac-10’s s top six teams and 1-5 vs. the bottom four. Two bottom feeders (Oregon State and Oregon) visit Galen Center this week.
