The incomparable Sidney Moncrief -- an Arkansas icon who as part of the famed "Triplets" helped put the Razorbacks on the national college basketball map -- was honored Saturday during the Arkansas-LSU menís basketball game at Bud Walton Arena in Fayetteville for his recent induction into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame. "Super Sid" was recognized with a pre-game video tribute and a presentation during the game.

Moncrief's induction was part of the 2018 class of the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame that was honored on Nov. 18 in Kansas City, Mo. The seven other 2018 inductees were: Arizonaís Sean Elliott (player), Houstonís Otis Birdsong (player), North Carolinaís Sam Perkins (player), Morgan Stateís Marvin Webster (player), USCís Paul Westphal (player and coach), Charleston's John Kresse (coach), and Oregon Tech's Danny Miles (coach).

Moncrief, who played his high school basketball at Little Rock Hall before signing with Eddie Sutton's Razorbacks in 1975, became the third Hog to be inducted into the National Collegiate Basketball Hall of Fame, joining Sutton (selected in 2011) and Nolan Richardson (selected in 2008). All three Arkansas legends, as well as Arkansas great Corliss Williamson, have a banner hanging in the rafters of Bud Walton Arena to honor and recognize their achievements and impact on Razorbacks basketball. Moncrief's No. 32 Arkansas jersey was originally retired in a ceremony at Barnhill Arena in March of 1990, and it was commemorated and raised to the rafters at Bud Walton Arena in a ceremony during the 2015-16 season.
