Wednesday January 22, 2014Greg Stolt Named Florida's 2014 SEC Basketball Legend

Gainesville, Fla.

The Florida Gators are honoring Greg Stolt as the team’s 2014 Allstate SEC Basketball Legend. Stolt and the rest of this year’s class will be recognized at the SEC Tournament in Atlanta March 12-16.

 

“The University of Florida has a long list of successful players, professionals, and people who have gone through its basketball program,” Stolt said. “I am truly honored to have been selected to represent the University of Florida.”

 

A career 1,000point scorer and threetime SEC Academic Honor Roll selection, Greg Stolt received the 1999 Doug Belden Award presented by the University Athletic Association to the top graduating studentathlete for academic achievement, athletic achievement, community involvement and leadership.

 

Stolt was named cocaptain along with Eddie Shannon for his senior season, and he helped UF to the Sweet Sixteen and led the SEC in 3point percentage (.438). He finished his career with seven doubledoubles and 10 20point games, including a careerhigh 33 in 1996 vs. USF.

 

He finished his career with 1,303 points, ranking 27th on UF’s all-time scoring list, and 510 rebounds. He averaged 11.0 points per game and 4.3 rebounds and was a career 42 percent 3-point shooter, ranking ninth all-time at Florida.

 

Stolt now serves as the NBA’s Associate Vice President for Basketball Operations in China.

 

"The Allstate SEC Basketball Legends Program allows us to honor our past and show everyone why the SEC is one of the nation's premier basketball conferences," said SEC Commissioner Mike Slive.
