Two of UGA’s all-time greats have been selected for induction into the Georgia Sports Hall of Fame.
The first is Willie Anderson, a Bulldogs basketball star who was named All-SEC twice and led his team to a deep run into the 1987 NCAA tournament. Anderson went on to greater fame as an NBA first-rounder with the San Antonio Spurs, scoring nearly 7,000 points in his 11-year professional career.
The other is Jeff Treadway, who was the second baseman for the Atlanta Braves during the famous worst-to-first team in 1991. Treadway played at Middle Georgia junior college before transferring to UGA. He played for five different teams during his nine-year career in the majors.
Both Anderson and Treadway will be inducted the weekend of February 21.
