Former UCLA star Keith Erickson will be among the 12 players inducted into this year’s Pac-12 Men’s Basketball Hall of Honor.
The 71-year-old was part of the Bruins’ first two NCAA championship teams in 1964 and 1965, and also earned a spot on U.S. men’s volleyball team that finished ninth at the 1964 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. Drafted in the third round of the 1965 NBA draft, the El Segundo native embarked on a 12-year career that included a 1972 title run with the Lakers.
He retired in 1977 with 7,251 points, 3,449 rebounds, and 1,991 assists for four different teams.
Erickson will be inducted to the Hall of Honor on March 12, before the Pac-12 Tournament championship game at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
He will be joined in Las Vegas by Arizona’s Salim Stoudamire, Arizona State’s Art Becker, Cal’s Brian Hendrick, Colorado’s Scott Wedman, Oregon’s Luke Ridnour, Oregon State’s Jim Anderson, Stanford’s Kim Belton, USC’s Sam Clancy, Utah’s Vern Gardner, Washington’s Isaiah Thomas, and Washington State’s Keith Morrison.
