PRESS RELEASE

KANSAS CITY (Nov. 29, 2020) – Legendary Maryland men’s basketball player Len Bias has been selected to the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame Class of 2021, as announced Sunday.

The late Bias will be enshrined in November 2021 in Kansas City at the 2021 National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame Induction Celebration presented by Nike. The event is part of Kansas City’s Hall of Fame Weekend, which also includes the annual Hall of Fame Classic tournament. 

“I’m really excited for the Bias family on Len being selected for enshrinement into the Hall of Fame,” said Maryland head coach Mark Turgeon. “It’s a well-deserved honor and well overdue. It’s great news for the Maryland program and for all those associated with Len.”

Bias is joined by fellow classmates David Greenwood (UCLA), Hershey Hawkins (Bradley), Jim Jackson (Ohio State), Antawn Jamison (UNC), Paul Pierce (Kansas) and coaches Rick Byrd and Tom Penders. 

Few players have ever dominated the ACC like Maryland’s Bias did from 1982-86. He scored 2,149 points over his Terps career – the third-most in program history – and also averaged 5.7 rebounds per game. 

Bias’ accolades include two ACC Player of the Year awards, two All-ACC First Team selections, and All-America honors in 1985 and 1986. Bias was selected second overall by the Boston Celtics in the 1986 NBA Draft before tragically passing away shortly after.
