Pac-10 Conference announced its 2011 Pac-10 Hall of Honor inductees and one of this year's selections is Winnipeg native Todd MacCulloch. It's the 10th year that the Pac-10 inducted one member from each institution into the Hall of Honor. The former Washington center averaged 15.2 points, 8.5 rebounds and shot a record 66% for his UW career. MacCulloch arrived at the University of Washington a raw, unpolished basketball player that redshirted his first year on campus. By the time he left campus in 1999, MacCulloch was one of the greatest centers to wear the Husky purple and gold, who challenged many of the school's all-time records. Todd went on to play four years in the NBA with the Philadelphia 76'ers and New Jersey Nets. 

Standing at 7-foot-0 and 280 pounds, MacCulloch was the Huskies
main cog from 1996-1999 and led the team to NCAA Tournament appearances
his junior and senior seasons. He averaged 18.6 points and 9.7 rebounds
in 1998 when Washington advanced to the Sweet 16 before falling to
Connecticut on a last-second shot. As a senior, MacCulloch averaged 18.7
points and 11.9 rebounds - the seventh highest rebound average in
single season.

MacCulloch was twice named first-team All-Pacific-10 Conference
and a two-time Playboy All-American during his career. He joined Jerry
Lucas as just the second player in NCAA history to lead the nation in
field goal percentage three consecutive seasons.

MacCulloch ended his UW career as the school's all-time field
goal percentage (.664) leader, second all-time in blocked shots (142)
and fifth in total points (1,743) and rebounds (985). His yearly field
goal averages rank as the top-four all-time single-season marks in
school history. His eight games with 30 or more points ranks as the
second most all-time at UW.

He also holds several single-game marks that still stand today,
including field goal percentage (10-10 vs. ASU, 2/29/96) and most
rebounds in a game since 1977 with 21 twice.

After completing his career, MacCulloch was a second round draft
choice (47th overall) by the Philadelphia 76ers. He amassed 1,369 career
points in a four-year NBA career before injuries forced him to retire
