Elliot Perry, who is the U of M's second all-time leading scorer, was one of the finest guards to ever play for Memphis. The native Memphian led the Tigers to four straight postseason tournaments and 76 wins over his career.
Perry, who started every game of his four year career, paced the team in scoring, assists and steals three consecutive seasons. The former McDonald All-American led the Tigers to a 20-12 record and an NCAA bid as a freshman. He was named the Metro Conference Freshman of the Year and Sport Magazine's freshman point guard of the year.
Perry led the Metro Conference in scoring as a senior with a 20.8 average and in steals with 85 and was again named to the All-Conference team. He became Memphis' and the Metro Conference's career leader in steals with 300 and became just the tenth player in NCAA history to amass 300 steals.
His jersey number 34 is retired and hangs in The Pyramid. Following graduation, Perry spent 11 years in the NBA.
