Former Pilots basketball standout Laura Sale O’Connell ’96 will be one of ten individuals to be inducted in the WCC Hall of Honor this spring. The West Coast Conference will induct its sixth annual Hall of Honor class on Saturday, March 8, at the Orleans Hotel in Las Vegas, Nev. Ten individuals, one from each member institution, will be honored as part of the 2014 West Coast Conference Men’s and Women’s Basketball Championships from March 6-11 at the Orleans Arena.
At Portland, Laura was the ultimate student-athlete, starring on the court while shining in the classroom. Sale O’Connell, who still ranks fifth all-time in UP program history with 1,542 career points, helped lead the Pilots to three NCAA Tournaments in the mid-1990s and she was named an Academic All-American in 1996.
