Keith Morrison to be inducted to the Pac-12 Hall of Honor

Cougar star point guard receives big honor.

Former WSU point guard Keith "Scooter" Morrison is among 12 Pac-12 basketball greats who will be inducted to the Pac-12 Men's Basketball Hall of Honor this March. Morrison joins such players as Luke Ridnour and Isaiah Thomas in this year's class.

Morrison had a terrific career from 1983-86 in Pullman. He was probably the highlight of the otherwise dismal Len Stevens era. An all-city player out of Cleveland high school in Reseda, Ca., Morrison was considered the best guard in the Pac-10 his senior year. He was named to the All-Conference first team both his junior and senior year. He was known for his ability to be able to expertly dribble with both hands, a skill he told the LA times that he learned as an infant when his mother forced him to take his bottle only with his right-hand even though he was left-handed.

"Scooter" finished his career as the all-time WSU leader in assists and also cracked the 1000 point barrier. He finished second all-time in steals and sixth in field goal percentage. His senior year the Associated Press named him Honorable Mention All-American. He went on to be the highest drafted player out of the Pac-10 that year, going in the fifth round to the Sacramento Kings.

Keith Morrison may not be a household name to many Cougar fans, but he probably should be.
