Austin Carr has been announced to be part of the inaugrual class of inductees to the NCAA Basketball hall of fame (with other greats such as Kareem Abdul-Jabbar).
Its a very, very high honor and AC is very deserving. Here are some notes on his HOF Notre Dame Career:
“The consensus player of the year for Notre Dame in 1971 and a unanimous first team All-America player, Carr holds the NCAA tournament career record for scoring average at 41.3 points per game. He also holds the tournament game records for points with 61, field goals with 25 and field goals attempted with 44. Carr was named to the ESPN Top 50 college players of all-time in 2005.”
Way to go AC. “Mr. Cavalier” is a 100% class act and a Cav through and through. I also think he is cool as hell because he gave me (just a random crazed fan) a hug with tears still in his eyes at the draft party just after we won the lottery. THAT is a guy who loves the wine and gold.
