Pac-12: Utes' Billy McGill enters Hall of Honor today
Billy "The Hill" McGill, who averaged 38.8 points as a Utah senior in 1962, will be inducted into the Pac-12 Men's Basketball Hall of Honor today in a ceremony preceding the conference tournament semifinals at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.
McGill, 74, also was honored at a Ute home game last month. He lives in Los Angeles and has recently written an autobiography titled "Billy the Hill and the Jump Hook."
McGill led to the Utes to 1961 Final Four and was a No. 1 pick of the NBA's Chicago Zephyrs, although he didn't have a distinguished pro career as a 6-foot-9 center.<
In the semifinals, No. 1 seed Arizona meets No. 5 Colorado at 7 p.m. MDT and No. 2 UCLA plays No. 6 Stanford at 9:40 p.m. Pac-12: Utes' Billy McGill enters Hall of Honor today
