KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- Shaquille O'Neal, Grant Hill and Darrell Griffith headline the 2014 College Basketball Hall of Fame class.

O'Neal averaged 22 points and 14 rebounds during his three-year college career at LSU, and was a first-team All-American his final two seasons. Hill led Duke to two national championships, and Griffith helped Louisville win the title his senior season.
