Hall of Fame Class:

Frank Burgess came to Gonzaga right out of the Air Force in 1058, and his basketball career immediately took off. The 6-foot-1 sharpshooter from Eudora, Ark., led the Bulldogs in scoring for three seasons and won the national collegiate scoring crown for the 1960-61 season with 842 points in 26 games and a 32.4 scoring average. Burgess scored 2,196 points in his three years here - he spent a pre-military year at Arkansas AM&N - and seven times scored more than 40 points in a game with a high of 52 against California-Davis in his senior year. Burgess was a Helms Foundation All-American selection in his junior and senior years and was an All-American choice by the major wire services in his senior year. After two seasons with Hawaii in the professional American Basketball League, he returned to Gonzaga to attend law school and graduated near the top of his class. He was inducted into the Inland Empire Sports Hall of Fame in 1985.
