LSU sends two to Hall of Fame
KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Shaquille O'Neal, Grant Hill and Darrell Griffith headline the 2014 College Basketball Hall of Fame class.
O'Neal averaged 22 points and 14 rebounds during his three-year college career at LSU, and was a first-team All-American his final two seasons. Hill led Duke to two national championships, and Griffith helped Louisville win the title his senior season.
They will be joined at the induction ceremony in November by NAIA star Zelmo Beaty from Prairie View A&M; Final Four coaches Dale Brown of LSU and Gary Williams of Maryland; longtime coach and author Glenn Wilkes Sr.; and Howard Garfinkel, the founder of the Five-Star Basketball Camp.
Hall of Fame selection committee chair Reggie Minton said this year's class "has a unique identity ... and we look forward to celebrating them in November."
