Bill Walton honored at McArthur Court
EUGENE, Ore. -- Sporting a throwback UCLA letterman jacket, former All-American Bill Walton walked over to the Bruins' pregame huddle and put his right arm into the pile.
UCLA players walked back to the bench smiling.
Walton, along with Oregon's Larry Holliday, was an honorary captain on Thursday night as the Ducks celebrate the final season of McArthur Court's history. Holliday was part of Oregon's upset of then No. 1 UCLA in 1970.
Here's a video of Walton (a former Portland Trailblazer) being introduced:
