Senior Associate Commissioner Myndee Kay Larsen Inducted into SUU Hall of Fame

Summit League Senior Associate Commissioner Myndee Kay Larsen was among four other former Southern Utah student-athletes that were inducted into SUU’s Athletic Hall of Fame Saturday during a banquet prior to the men’s basketball game against Eastern Washington.

Larsen, who was a four-year letter-winner in women's basketball at SUU, earned first-team CoSIDA GTE Academic All-American honors, was a two-time all-AWC honoree and earned first-team all-Mid-Continent Conference recognition. She set two NCAA records which still stand, for converting 28 consecutive field goal attempts in a row, which helped her to set the NCAA season mark when she connected on 249-of-344 shots, 72.4 percent, as a senior in 1997-98. She is the school's career field goal percentage and blocks leader and ranks second in rebounds and fourth in free throw percentage. Larsen is the only T-Bird to have their number retired and hanging in the rafters of the Centrum Arena.
