May 21, 2010
SPOKANE, Wash. - Two former Gonzaga University men's basketball players will be inducted into the Northwest Athletic Association of Community Colleges (NWAACC) Hall of Fame June 3 at the Red Lion Hotel in Bellevue, Wash.
Bill Dunlap, who played for the Bulldogs in the 1981 and '82 seasons and Lorenzo Rollins, who played in the 1996 and `97 campaigns, will join 17 other individuals also being inducted.
Dunlap, who attended Lower Columbia Community College prior to joining the Bulldogs, was a 1982 West Coast Conference first-team selection and an Associated Press honorable mention All-America honoree. He still holds the career field goal percentage record of 62.5 percent. He shot 63.6 percent from the field as a junior, a mark that still ranks second on the all-time Gonzaga single-season list, and 62.1 percent as a junior which ranks sixth. He averaged 15.2 ppg to lead the Bulldogs in scoring his senior season after averaging 7.9 ppg in a reserve role as a junior.
Dunlap was the Washington State Class AA Player of the Year as a senior at Mark Morris High in Longview, Wash., and was a member of the first State Class AA title team.
He scored 1,008 points and averaged 19.8 ppg in his two years at Lower Columbia. He currently works for a civil engineering firm in Kirkland, Wash.
Rollins, a native of Tacoma, Wash., who attended Tacoma Community College, averaged 16.0 ppg his senior season for the Bulldogs while starting 26 games. As a junior he started 16 of his 30 appearances, averaging 10.3 ppg. One of his best games as a Bulldog came in the 1996 National Invitational Tournament at Washington State University when he scored a career-high 30 points. After going just 1-for-8 from the field and 1-for-3 from 3-point range while scoring four first-half points, he scorched the Cougars for 26 second-half points while going 10-for-18 from the field, including 3-for-4 from long range. He finished 11-for-25 from the field, 4-for-7 from beyond the arc and 4-for-4 from the free throw line.
A graduate of Henry Foss High in Tacoma, he averaged 19 ppg and 7 rpg his senior year while earning team MVP honors. He helped lead Foss to the Washington State Class AAA Tournament as a sophomore in 1993.
Rollins was a 1994 NWAACC Regional MVP and is TCC's all-time leading scorer, averaging 27.8 ppg his sophomore season.
He currently owns his own painting company in Tacoma.
Dunlap and Rollins will join current Gonzaga athletic director Mike Roth in the NWAACC Hall of Fame. Roth, who played basketball for Big Bend Community College in his hometown of Moses Lake, Wash., is a member of the Class of 1997.
