Kurt Rambis To Be Inducted Into 2012 WCC Hall Of Honor

Kurt Rambis is renowned for being a great Laker, having funky goggles, and clothes-lining Kevin McHale. But before that Rambis was a big-time Santa Clara Bronco, and he did some great things there. More on why Rambis is getting inducted after the jump courtesy of this press release.

During his career at Santa Clara, Rambis scored a school-record 1,736 points from 1976-80. He was named the West Coast Conference Player of the Year in 1980 after being named the WCC Freshman of the Year in 1977. Thirty-two years later he is still in the top 10 of the following individual career records at SCU: No. 1 in scoring (1,736 points), No. 2 in field goals made (686) No. 3 in personal fouls (366), rebounds (1,037) and games started (107); No. 4 in free throws attempted (545); No. 5 in field goals attempted (1,316); No. 6 with points per game (16.1) and ; No. 8 in minutes played (3,240); and No. 10 in field goal percentage (.521) and free throws made (364). He is tied with John Bryant (22, vs. LMU, 1-29-09) for the Leavey Center record with 22 rebounds vs. Saint Mary's in the Broncos' 90-73 win over the Gaels on Feb. 5, 1977.

The rest of this class includes BYU's Elaine Michaelis (Volleyball/Administration), Gonzaga University's Blake Stepp (Men's Basketball), Loyola Marymount University's Billy Bean (Baseball), Pepperdine University's Dana Jones (Men's Basketball), University of Portland's Kasey Keller (Men's Soccer), Saint Mary's College's Tom Candiotti (Baseball), University of San Diego's Thomas Burke (Administration) and University of San Francisco's K.C.
