Cal Hall of Fame: Lamond Murray, Jocelyn Forest headline seven-member induction class

Lamond Murray, one of the greatest scorers in Cal basketball history, and Jocelyn Forest, who pitched the Bears to the 2002 softball College World Series title, leads the latest class of inductees into the university’s Athletic Hall of Fame.

Other newcomers are Haley Cope (swimming) Mike Harrison (baseball),  Bruce Kennedy (track and field), Anne Walker (golf) and Stu Gordon (service award). Here are details on the Cal website.

Murray, who came to Cal from Kennedy HS in Fremont the year before Jason Kidd arrived, is perhaps the second-best scorer I’ve seen at Cal (behind Shareef Abdur-Rahim). Murray left Cal after three seasons as the Bears’ No. 1 career scorer (1,688) and remains No. 4 on the all-time list.

Teamming with Kidd in 1992-93, Murray helped power the Bears to an upset of two-time defending NCAA champ Duke in the second round of the NCAA tournament. He went on to play 11 seasons in the NBA.

    Lamond Murray had the sweetest shooting stroke ever.

  • Ditto that H8!!! I was playing in high school when he was lighting up Harmon and I’d practice his stroke every night at the park across the street from my house. Couldn’t quite duplicate it though, not surprisingly.

    the color is kinda weird but this video says it all about Lamond:


  • Jeff, I hate to argue a point of yours but I think that Ed Gray’s ’96-’97 season was the best offensive year ever at Cal, even better than Shareef’s. Shareef was amazing, as was Gray. Lamond was the best though: dunks, rebounds, 3-pointers, blocks – he did it all. Lamond should prolly have some kids in HS by now, can we get a Murray jr. on the team?

    Best Murray highlight of all time is at the end of this clip:

    Great to hear that Bruce Kennedy is in. Three-time Olympian who unfortunately never got to participate in the Games.

    Why does this blog intentionally ignore the Fujita controversy? I wonder why.


    Nice spin control job by Fujita. I wonder how many Social Welfare courses he took in college

  • steveNTexas

    I agree with Blake – Ed Gray was super -there were times I felt he would never miss.
    I was shocked and saddened that he never became a star at the next level. I understand why though -sad.

  • rob bear

    Murray, Shareef & Gray were great offensive players and all belong in this Hall. For speculation purposes, can you imagine how a Senior Year Ryan Anderson may have ended with the cast of players around him? This guy had a chance to rewrite the book of the then PAC 10 with respect to the overall scorer of the conference. Heck of a player. It will be interesting to see if he gets in after only playing two years. Did not stop Kidd, but a lot of that probably comes from his NBA Hall of Fame credentials. Hopefully Anderson makes it as well. The entire cast are Bear icons. Excellent, excellent college basketball players.

    this is a cool thing the ATO is doing…

    Why does the U$C troll intentionally ignore the OJ Simpson controversy? I wonder why.


    Nice trolling job by the Moren. I wonder how many courses she took in college – oh, that’s right: NONE because she wasn’t smart enough to get into Cal or USC.

  • BlueNGold

    Wow, what a bitter troll. Maybe, if you got a life, things would look brighter to you?

  • MoreNCsarecoming

    Cravens just signed with us. Fight On!!!!

  • MoreNCsarecoming

    Daddy got a tour around the stadium today. He said “All we need now is a team.”

    MoreNCS_are_ignored and sanctioned! troll post blocked

    In other news, Moren is still a virgin.

  • BlueNGold

    If this ‘daddy’ person actually exists, and not just a figment of a rather delusional imagination, he is really pretty classless and a fraud as a fan of Cal sports. Come to think about it, he’s quite a bit like his so-called offspring.

  • MoreNCsarecoming

    If Daddy is a fraud he came home with quite a few pictures of the new facilities. Daddy is the real deal.

  • MoreNCsarecoming

    Daddy’s tickets the last 20 years would be going for $75000. Since he had 4 he would pay $300000 as a one time payment. He can also pay annual payments for 30 years.

    If Daddy did that he would be a fraud considering how pathetic is (and has been) your football team. He knows I don’t want them and he knows my sister (a Georgetown grad) doesn’t either.

    Time to summarize our little freak troll.
    1. He’s been doing this for 15 years. How sad is that.
    2. He went to SC undergrad (didn’t get into Cal) and even tho, and he tells us all the time, that his daddy is a rich Cal donor, he still couldn’t get into UCB Law school. Had to go to UC Davis (remember that when he slams UC schools.)
    3. He got friendly with the moderator from the Cal scout board and didn’t realize the moderator was playing him. Moron admitted he had to take a “medical leave” from law school and he never went back. “Medical leaves” that never end are a university euphamism for mental breakdown.
    4. He has posted on the following holiday nights in the past: New Year’s Eve, Halloween, Christmans, Valentine’s day. That tells you he is ALWAYS alone and at home and never with friends or a gf. He has NO friends, and no gf. Probably a virgin, unless he’s paid for it.
    5. The only person he has passion with in his life is Boyson, the Social Welfare advisor at Cal. Boyson got him banned at the Scout sites after moron famously announced “The fat man won’t get me banned”. That’s why his morencsarecoming sn is not on scout.
    6. SC boards have punked him and banned him. How pathetic when your own fellow fans hate you as well.
    7. So now he is all alone in life with nothing to do but hate Cal. The first thing he does in the morning (check his 6am posts) is rush to computer and post hate cal messages. On New Year’s Eve, he stays home and posts hate cal messages.
    8. He’s obessed with Boyson. I bet all his daddy’s money that his reply to this message will be about Boyson and some old false accusations that were made against Boyson several years ago. Boyson is still working and Moron is still all alone.

    Pity the troll — his hate for Cal is all he’s got. Seriously, follks — consider it: would ANYONE want his life? Nope. Pity the troll.

  • GOGO Bears

    How come Daddy’s money didn’t get him into Boalt Law? THat’s how low his gpa and LSATs were.

    ANd how pathetic do youhave to be to be forced out of UC Davis law when you keep having emotional breakdowns in class?

    And how sad is it that a rich boy doesn’t have friends and stays at home on New Year’s Eve?

    Pity the troll folks — this is all he’s got.

  • GOGO Bears

    And notice how desperate Moron is to make us think he’s got a rich daddy with all these Cal connections? Yet watch, when he goes after Boyson, he’ll slam boyson for having connections to the football team.

    Poor moron, his obession with Boyson just highlights his mental instability. He can’t handle being exposed and banned at the hands of Boyson. Check out Moron’s sfgate page messages to himself: they are all about Boyson. Seriously, this freak has major psychological problems. http://www.sfgate.com/profile/?plckPersonaPage=PersonaMessages&plckUserId=the9drawfs&User=the9drawfs

    And while moron talks about how much money daddy has, he won’t talk about his own wealth. He admitted to the moderator who played him that the best work he can get these days is in a travel agency that is owned by a friend of daddy’s.

    How sad. But hey — if you need a cruise booked, you know who to ask.

    Oh man, what a depressing life.
