Portland Trail Blazers guard Damian Lillard is one of 14 members named to the Big Sky Conference’s inaugural Hall of Fame class, it was announced Wednesday. Lillard previously starred at Weber State before Portland selected him No. 6 in the 2012 NBA Draft. Lillard’s selection to the Hall of Fame is well-earned:
Lillard is the only men’s basketball player in the inaugural class. He’s the only player in Big Sky history to be named to an All-America team. He earned third-team All-America honors in 2012 after an historic final season at Weber State, where he finished second in the nation in scoring at 24.5 points per game, the best in WSU history.
The ceremony is set for Saturday, March 14. You can read more about Lillard’s recognition here.
