Here’s Roy’s bio from the Pac-12.
Easily one of the most memorable players to wear a Husky uniform, Roy left an immeasurable mark on the Husky program before going to the NBA. Playing from 2003-06 for UW, Roy finished his collegiate career as the 14th best scorer all-time with 1,477 points after shooting over 45 percent every season. He helped the Huskies reach the NCAA Tournament for three-straight years, including UW’s first-ever No. 1 seed in the tournament in 2005 and back-to-back Sweet 16 appearances in his junior and senior years. After breaking out in his sophomore season, Roy racked up a wealth of national accolades including being named an All-American and the Pac-10 Player of the Year in his senior season along with being a finalist for the Wooden, Naismith, Oscar Robertson and Adolph Rupp Awards. He was selected in the first round of the 2006 NBA Draft, sixth overall by the Portland Trailblazers, and went on to become the 2007 Rookie of the Year as well as a three-time NBA All-Star before finishing his career with the Minnesota Timberwolves in 2012-13.
Roy will become the 13th Washington Husky to enter the Pac-12 Hall of Honor, founded in 2002. Other members include: Bob Houbregs (2002), Marv Harshman (2003), James Edwards (2004), Jack Nichols (2005), Steve Hawes (2006), Christian Welp (2007), Louie Nelson (2008), Detlef Schrempf (2009), Eldridge Recasner (2010), Todd MacCulloch (2011), George Irvine (2012)d and Nate Robinson (2013).
