Salim takes his place among Pac-12's greats


The Pac-12 Conference honored 12 former student-athletes Saturday night in Las Vegas with their induction into the Pac-12 Men's Basketball Hall of Honor. 

The individuals inducted into the Class of 2016 were Salim Stoudamire (Arizona), Art Becker (Arizona State), Brian Hendrick (California), Scott Wedman (Colorado), Luke Ridnour (Oregon), Jim Anderson (Oregon State), Kim Belton (Stanford), Keith Erickson (UCLA), Sam Clancy (USC), Vern Gardner (Utah), Isaiah Thomas (Washington) and Keith Morrison (Washington State).

Stoudamire’s legacy as an Arizona Wildcat has not diminished one bit in the decade since his graduation. 

A 2004-05 All-American, Stoudamire dominated NCAA and Arizona scoring and three-point shooting leaderboards throughout his career. He led the NCAA in three-point shooting with a ridiculous 50.4 percent mark (120 of 238) in his senior season that also saw him named Most Outstanding Player of the 2005 Pac-10 Tournament. 

He holds Wildcat records for most made three-point field goals in a game (9), in a season (120) and in a career (342). The lefty guard’s career three-point field goal percentage of .458 is second only to Steve Kerr. 

His career free throw shooting mark of 87.0 percent is second all-time in Wildcat history. His career marks in made free throws (388), games started (117) and minutes played (3,848) all rank in the top ten in school history. 

Stoudamire went on to be selected with the 31st overall pick of the 2005 NBA Draft by the Atlanta Hawks. He is also a member of the Arizona Ring of Honor.

  • Sean Elliott (2002)
