2014 ATHLETIC HALL OF FAME INDUCTEE

Kwame Evans '96 is one of the best players in GW men's basketball history. Evans helped the Colonials to 78 victories and four trips to the postseason during his career, including NCAA Tournament appearances in 1993, 1994 and 1996. During the magical run to the 1993 NCAA Tournament Sweet 16, Evans tallied team highs of 19 points in the NCAA first round victory over New Mexico and 13 points against Michigan in the Sweet 16. As a sophomore in 1993-94, Evans was the team's third-leading scorer at 13.2 points per game as GW made the NCAA Tournament once again. He then led the team and the Atlantic 10 in scoring at 19.4 points per game in 1994-95, and again paced the Colonials at 18.7 points per game en route to the NCAA Tournament in 1995-96, earning First Team All-Conference accolades each season. Evans currently ranks fifth on GW's all-time scoring list.
