Former University of Houston standout Elvin Hayes was the headliner at the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame induction ceremony Sunday night.
Other players inducted included Xavier McDaniel of Wichita State, Marques Johnson of UCLA, Tom McMillen of Maryland and Bob Hopkins of Grambling. The 2013 class also included coaches Gene Keady and Rollie Massimino, contributors George Raveling and George Killian and the Loyola-Chicago team that won a national championship in 1963.
The Ramblers were the first NCAA champion with at least four black players in the starting lineup.
Hayes, a 6-foot-9 center-forward known for his trademark turnaround jumper, is already in the NBA Hall of Fame, but is perhaps best known for his role in leading Houston to a 71-69 victory that snapped UCLA's 47-game winning streak in 1968.
