The first Wolf Pack women’s basketball player to earn induction into the Hall of Fame, Chris Starr ended her collegiate career as the most decorated player in school history, earning All-America honors in 1985 and 1986. A native of Klamath Falls, Ore., the 6-0 forward set over 20 school records in her career and still holds the majority of them. She scored 2,356 points in her four seasons to set the Nevada women’s basketball career scoring record, a mark that stood for 21 years as the most points by any Nevada basketball player - man or woman - until Nick Fazekas surpassed it in 2006-07. Starr made 60.3 percent of her career field goal attempts and also holds the Wolf Pack career records for rebounds (948), free throws made (594) and free throw percentage (.865). She also earned Academic All-America honors in 1985-86. Starr is currently the Director of Intramural Sports at Colorado College in Colorado Springs, Colo.
