Former Washington Husky standout Bob Houbregs was one of 20 players selected to the Pac-12 All-Century team.

Former UCLA greats Kareem Abdul-Jabbar  and John Wooden were voted the conference’s player and coach of the century, respectively.

The Bruins dominated the All-Century team with 10 players. Arizona, Oregon State and USC each had two players chosen while California, Oregon, Stanford and Washington had one selection.

Houbregs, a 6-foot-8, 225-pound center, played three years (1951-53) for the Huskies and led UW to its only Final Four appearance as a senior.

Houbregs finished his career averaging 19.5 points (second all-time) and 10.7 rebounds (third all-time). He scored 1,774 career points, which ranks fifth on Washington’s all-time scoring list. He is the Huskies’ only consensus All-American (1953) and was also named the NCAA Player of the Year that season.

Houbregs’ No. 25 was the first jersey retired in the program’s history.

The Pac-12 created the All-Century team to celebrate the 100-year anniversary of the conference. Each team selected the nominees and 114 panelists voted for the members of the team.
