COLLEGE PARK, Md. — Len Bias, who died of a drug overdose soon after being the No. 2 pick in the 1986 NBA draft, will be inducted into the University of Maryland Hall of Fame.

Bias, who left as the school's career scoring leader, was among eight players announced Wednesday by the Terrapins' athletic department. Bias, men’s lacrosse player Bob Boneillo, track & field/football player Edward G. Cooke, field hockey and women’s lacrosse player Maureen ‘Bean’ Scott Dupcak, women’s lacrosse player Alex Kahoe, women’s basketball player Debbie Lytle, athletic trainer Sandy Worth and football player Charlie Wysocki will be inducted Friday, Oct. 3 at a ceremony in the Samuel Riggs IV Alumni Center.

Bias was a two-time ACC player of the year and was the conference's athlete of the year and a consensus first-team All-American in 1986. The Boston Celtics drafted him with the second pick, but he died two days later from cardiac arrhythmia induced by a cocaine overdose.
