 SEATTLE (AP) - Former Washington basketball star and Hall of Fame inductee Bob Houbregs has died at age 82.
Houbregs died on Wednesday morning, the school confirmed. Details of his death were not immediately available.
Houbregs was a star in college thanks to his hook shot. He led Washington to its only Final Four appearance in 1953, capping his stellar career at Washington. He was an all-Pacific Coast Conference selection from 1951-53 and an All-American in 1953. Houbregs was Washington's all-time leading scorer from the end of his career until the 1980s. He still ranks fifth on the Huskies' all-time list.
Houbregs was the No. 3 overall pick in the 1953 NBA draft by the Milwaukee Hawks and went on to play for the Baltimore Bullets, Boston Celtics and Fort Wayne Pistons during his brief NBA career.
