All America in 1988, he led Arizona to the Pac-10 Conference title, its first mid-season Number One national ranking, a berth in the NCAA FINAL FOUR, and a 35-3 season record. He was a pivotal member of UA's Pac-10 championship in 1986, its first, and was selected for the 1986 U.S. World Championship team but suffered severe knee injury during the tournament and, following reconstructive surgery, missed the entire 1987 college season. As UA's point guard in 1988, he played 13 consecutive games without a turnover and set an NCAA season record for three point field goal percentage (.571). For overcoming both the 1987 knee injury and a highly-publicized personal tragedy in 1984, he was awarded the USBWA National Courage Award in 1988. Drafted by the NBA Phoenix Suns, he played also for the Clevland Cavaliers, and, at time of his induction, was with the Orlando Magic.
