On Tuesday, the Oklahoma Sports Hall of Fame announced its class of 2017 inductees. Among those that will be recognized during a ceremony on August 14 is former three-time All-American and OSU’s second-leading career scorer Bryant Reeves.

During his four-year career at Oklahoma State, “Big Country” led the Cowboys to a Sweet 16 and a Final Four. He won two Big 8 Player of the Year awards, while leading the conference in scoring in 1992-93 (19.5 points per game) and leading the conference in rebounding all four years.

His scoring output increased each year. As a senior in 1995 he finished second in the Big 8 in scoring at 21.5 points per game while setting an Oklahoma State record with 797 points.

In the 1995 NBA Draft, Reeves was taken with the sixth overall pick to the expansion Vancouver Grizzles. Reeves spent eight years with the Grizzlies. He made an astonishing $55.3 million in his career.

Also included in the inductee list are former Oklahoma State national champion and gold medal wrestler Doug Blubaugh, OU quarterback Jason White, former baseball player Bill Greason, OU football player Bill Krisher and former OCU track coach Jeff Bennet.
