Former Florida F Greg Stolt is among 14 former basketball players named to the 2014 SEC Legends Class.

The members of the class will be honored throughout the SEC Men's Basketball Tournament March 12-16 at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta. Each SEC Basketball Legend will be recognized at halftime of his institution's first game at the tournament.

A forward for the Gators from 1995-99, Stolt was a career 1,000-point scorer and three-time member of the SEC Academic Honor Roll. He received the 1999 Doug Belden Award presented by the University Athletic Association to the top graduating student-athlete for academic achievement, athletic achievement, community involvement and leadership. Stolt was named co-captain along with Eddie Shannon for his senior season, and he helped UF to the Sweet Sixteen as he led the SEC in 3-point percentage (.438).

He finished his career with seven double-doubles and ten 20-point games, including a career-high 33 in 1996 vs. USF. Stolt now serves as the NBA’s Associate Vice President for Basketball Operations in China.
