New Orleans, Louisiana 2022-06-22 18:11:00 –

On July 25, LSU will unveil a statue of Pete Maravich, the highest scorer in NCAA Division I basketball history. The athletic club announced on Wednesday.

Unanimously approved by the LSU Supervisory Board in 2016, the statue stands side by side with the existing portraits of the Hall of Fame Shaquille O’Neal and Bob Pettit on the north side of the Pete Maravich Assembly Center.

The statue will be unveiled at 6 pm, after which a private reception will be held within PMAC.

Born 75 years ago today, Maravich scored 3,667 points in three seasons at LSU, averaging 44.2 points per game from 1967 to 1970. Maravich’s record has withstood the challenges of his time, despite limiting freshmen to playing basketball on the national team and lacking three-point lines and shot clocks during his college career.

Maravich, who won the 1970 Naismith Award and the Sporting News National Player of the Year, became a five-time NBA All-Star after three first-team All-American games at LSU.
