Terese Allen Playing for Georgia State from 1977-81, Allen has her No. 34 jersey hanging from the rafters of the Sports Arena after a career that saw her earn All-America honorable mention recognition and finish with a school record of 2,074 points. Allen was a pioneer of the program which did not start until the 1975-76 season. She also holds the school records for most points per game in a career (19.4) and points in a season (771). Allen played a key role on the 1980-81 squad that went 28-5 and advanced to national postseason play.
Charles "Lefty" Driesell A NABC Hall of Famer, Driesell is one of the most successful coaches of all time. After successful coaching stops at Davidson, Maryland and James Madison, Driesell took the Georgia State program to levels it had never seen before starting in 1997. In just over five seasons, Driesell won 103 games, including a school-record 29-5 in the 2000-01 season that saw the Panthers shock No. 6-seed Wisconsin in the NCAA tournament. He won three-straight conference regular season titles (2000-02) and took the TAAC tournament title in 2001. He was the first coach to win 100 games at four different schools and was honored with the court being named after him in the GSU Sports Arena. 
Don Floyd  

Floyd entered Georgia State in 1939 and was arguably the first “superstar” in program history. In 1940, the men’s tennis team that he led became known as “The Terror of the Southern Courts” as the team rolled everyone and went undefeated with wins over Alabama and Clemson. Among Floyd’s wins that year was a victory over Clemson’s Hoby Holtzendorf, one of the top players in the country. His greatest individual accomplishment came with a win over Davis Cup champion Wilmer Allison in 1943. In an interview in 1998, Don summed up his life this way “The three greatest influences in my life have been: 1. My family, 2. Tennis, 3. Georgia State University.” 

Rodney Hamilton Until just six months ago, Hamilton held the distinction of scoring the most points (1,515) in a career in Georgia State history. A two-time all-conference selection and two-time all-academic honoree, Hamilton is one of just three former Panthers to have his number hanging from the rafters of the Sports Arena. He still holds the record for most career assists (535) and steals (212) and is second in school history in free throw percentage (.838) and games played. Hamilton is a former Georgia State Male-Athlete of the Year and is currently an assistant coach at Tennessee State. 
Bob Heck The ‘Founding Father’ of Georgia State softball in 1984 (slow pitch) and 1985 (fast pitch) coached for 24 seasons before retiring with 700 victories. He guided Georgia State to six conference championships, highlighted by a NCAA Regional berth in 1994. He was named CAA Coach of the Year in 2006 when he led the Panthers to the conference’s regular season title in just their first year in the league. He recorded multiple 40-plus win seasons and by 1994, built a program that was ranked in the top 25. During his tenure, more than 90 student-athletes earned first or second-team all-conference honors. He was inducted into the Georgia Dugout Club Softball Hall of Fame and has his name on the softball complex for his many contributions to the program. 
Bruce LaBudde A member of the Georgia State Family for nearly 50 years, LaBudde was the first-ever Georgia State qualifier into an NCAA Championship when he accomplished the feat and the first coach to lead the Panthers to a Sun Belt title. Along with helping to organize the first Peachtree Road Race in 1970, he won the Atlanta Marathon in 1964, 1966 and 1967 and qualified for the Olympic Trials in 1968. He was the third men’s cross country/track & field coach in school history (1973-91) and the first women’s coach from 1976-91.

Over a three-game stretch, she scored a school record 45 points, then went for 39, before breaking her own record with 52 to average 45.3 points per game in that span.

Kevin Morris A three-time all-conference selection and TAAC Newcomer of the Year, Morris won the Chevrolet Scholarship Player of the Game after leading the Panthers past No. 6-seed Wisconsin in the 2001 NCAA tournament. He finished his career with the 11th-most points scored in school history, 1,212, despite playing just three seasons. He knocked down 160 3-pointers, seventh-most in school history and stands third with 202 steals. He was a leader on the 2000-01 team that went 29-5, won the TAAC regular season and tournament titles and has had his No. 13 jersey retired in the GSU Sports Arena rafters.
