Basketball notes: Pac-12 will honor ex-Cougar Bennie Seltzer

Bennie Seltzer will be the Washington State honoree when the Pac-12 inducts its 2014-15 class into the men’s basketball Hall of Honor at the end of the season.

Seltzer played at WSU from 1989-93 and set a school and Pac-12 record with 230 made 3-pointers. He was a four-year starter who led the team in assists as a freshman and three-time captain.

He finished his career as WSU’s No. 3 all-time leading scorer and first in assists, becoming the first player in school history to record four consecutive seasons with 100 or more assists.

Seltzer and the other inductees will be honored during a ceremony prior to the championship game of the Pac-12 men’s basketball tournament on March 14 at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas and at halftime of the game.
