STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – Oklahoma State University basketball coach Travis Ford has been enshrined in the Kentucky High School Basketball Hall of Fame.
Ford received the honor during a ceremony Saturday in Elizabethtown, Kentucky.
Ford scored 2,676 points and racked up 677 assists at Madisonville High School. He was a three-time all-state selection and was named to the KHSAA All-Tournament team and Parade and McDonald’s All-America teams as a senior at Madisonville in 1989.
He went on to play for Kentucky, where he set the single-game assists record, single-season three-point field goals and consecutive free throws made. Ford was part of the team’s Final Four run in 1993.
Ford begins his eighth season as the head coach at Oklahoma State this fall.
