The group includes standouts from six different Missouri State teams as the shrine’s 37th annual induction unfolds the weekend of Feb. 4-5, 2011.
The group includes two basketball players who provided inside scoring and rebounding leadership to their respective teams throughout their careers, standout starting pitchers for the softball and baseball Bears and a pair of three-time all-conference selections who were statistical record-setters in football and volleyball.
