Notre Dame legend, and basketball hall of famer Adrian Dantley will become the fourth person inducted into the Notre Dame basketball Ring of Honor later this season.
Dantley, who enjoyed a stellar three-year career in an Irish uniform from 1973-76, will join Austin Carr, Luke Harangody and Ruth Riley as a member of Notre Dame’s Ring of Honor. Harangody, who played for the Irish from 2006-10, was the school’s first inductee in February 2010. Riley (1997-2001), who helped lead the Irish women’s basketball program to the national championship in ’01, became the second member the Ring of Honor in November 2010, while Austin Carr (1968-71), who still remains the program’s career scoring leader with 2,560 points, became the third honoree when he was inducted in February 2011.
Named the national player of the year as a junior in 1975-76 by the United States Basketball Writers Association, Dantley was a two-time first-team All-American in 1974-75 and 1975-76. He also was a member of the United States Olympic basketball team that won the gold medal in Montreal in 1976.
