UCLA's Tyus Edney to Be Inducted Into Pac-12 Hall of Honor
By: UCLA Athletics

WALNUT CREEK, Calif. – Former UCLA guard Tyus Edney will be inducted into the Pac-12 Men’s Basketball Hall of Honor on Friday, March 14, during a ceremony prior to the semifinal games at the 2014 Pac-12 Tournament at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.

Joining Edney in this year’s induction class includes Luke Walton (Arizona), Verl Heap (Arizona State), David Butler (California), Ken Charlton (Colorado), Frederick Jones (Oregon), Lee Harman (Oregon State), Mark Madsen (Stanford), Wayne Carlander (USC), Billy McGill (Utah), Brandon Roy (Washington) and Ed Gayda (Washington State).

“This is a huge honor for me,” Edney said. “I am so humbled to be recognized alongside some of our conference’s most respected and accomplished players. To even be considered for this induction is a tremendous privilege, and I look forward to the ceremony in Las Vegas next month.”

Edney is currently in his fourth season as the UCLA men’s basketball program’s director of operations. He was a four-year letterwinner for the Bruins from 1992-1995, helping the Bruins advance to four NCAA Tournaments and win the 1995 NCAA title during his senior season.

Edney’s most signature moment came in the second game of the 1995 NCAA Tournament, when the Bruins’ point guard took an inbounds pass and drove the length of the court in the final 4.8 seconds, hitting the buzzer-beating layup to help UCLA defeat Missouri, 75-74, and advance to the Sweet 16. To this day, he ranks second on UCLA’s all-time assists list (652) and is third on the all-time free throws made list (450).

In addition, Edney’s career assist total ranks eighth in the Pac-12 Conference’s all-time records, and he owns the Pac-12 single game steals record (11, versus George Mason on Dec. 22, 1994). Edney is in the top 100 on the conference’s all-time scoring list with 1,515 points in four seasons.

Edney was selected in the second round of the 1995 NBA Draft by the Sacramento Kings and played in the NBA for four seasons with Sacramento, Boston and Indiana before playing professionally in Europe from 1998-2009.
