Former Wildcat Rooks named to Pac-12 Hall of Honor

Former four-year basketball standout Sean Rooks will be inducted into the Pac-12 Hall of Honor with the 2020 Class.

It’s the conference’s most prestigious recognition of the greatest on and off-field contributors to Pac-12 athletics. Formal induction will take place on Friday, March 13 during a ceremony prior to the semifinals of the 2020 Pac-12 Men’s Basketball Tournament.

Sean Rooks circa late 1980s while at UA.

Rooks, who passed away four years ago, played at UA from 1989 to 1992, finishing his career at UA as the team’s captain. He was the team MVP, made Pac-10 All Conference and Associated Press Honorable Mention All-American. He was part of three Pac-10 regular season titles.

The 2020 Hall of Honor class will be the 19th since its creation in 2002, and the third to feature legendary figures from an array of sports after the Pac-12 expanded the field to be inclusive of the broad-based athletics success across the Conference of Champions. Each year a new inductee from each Pac-12 university is welcomed into the Hall of Honor.

“The extraordinary achievements of this year’s Hall of Honor class represent the very best of our universities’ rich history of excellence athletically, academically and professionally,” said Pac-12 Commissioner Larry Scott. “The Pac-12 is incredibly proud to call them our own and to honor their legacies.”
