Art Musselman, a 1956 graduate of Huntington High School and a basketball star at The Citadel, has been named to the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame as part of its 2014 Men's Induction Class.
Musselman played under Hall of Fame coaches Lou Watson and Ivan Wilhelm during his time at Huntington. At The Citadel, his 1,504 career points were a school record for 25 years. His 750 career rebounds remain high in the school's career rankings as well. In 2009, his jersey was the first retired in the then 108-year history of Citadel basketball.
Later a head coach at Presbyterian College, he was an assistant coach at Clemson and at North Carolina State on their 1974 NCAA Championship team.
He resides in Knightdale, NC.
The 2014 men's induction class will be honored at the 53rd-annual Men's Awards Banquet on March 26, 2014. The day's events will include a reception at the Indiana Basketball Hall of Fame museum that afternoon with a banquet that evening at the Primo Banquet Hall in Indianapolis. Tickets will be made available in early 2014.
