Men's Basketball / Inducted Oct. 27, 2007
Wood led the United States’ men’s basketball team to gold in 1984, playing point guard for Coach Bob Knight. Earlier that year he earned first-team All-American honors from The Sporting News along with Michael Jordan, Akeem Olajuwon, Sam Perkins and Wayman Tisdale. Wood held the Cal State Fullerton career record for points (1,876) until this past season when Bobby Brown passed him. But Wood still holds the mark for assists (744) and he led the nation in 1982-83 with 319, which was the NCAA record at that time. He was a first-round draft choice of the Philadelphia 76ers and played six seasons in the National Basketball Association, where he has been a referee for the past 10 seasons. He is only the second former NBA player to become an NBA official. In 1991-92 he served as a Titan volunteer coach while rehabilitating a foot injury. He was inducted into the Orange County Sports Hall of Fame in 1998.
