The Total Tutor Neil Haley will interview NBA Star Dennis Hopson. Dennis will discuss his career at Ohio State, his career in NBA, and his basketball career all over the world.

 The Ohio Basketball Hall of Fame panel has announced that Bowling Green State University men's basketball assistant coach Dennis Hopson will be inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2014. Hopson joins 14 other selections for the upcoming class.
"It is such an honor to be a part of this elite group," Hopson said. "Without the help of all the great people in my life, none of this would be possible. My commitment, dedication and love for the game has paid off and I really appreciate all the people who have recognized my efforts and work."
Beginning his fifth year as an assistant coach at BGSU, Hopson was a standout player at E. L. Bowsher High School in Toledo before going on to Ohio State. At OSU, Hopson was Big Ten Conference Player of the Year in 1987 and finished his career as the all-time leading scorer in program history.
Hopson was the No. 3 overall pick in the 1987 NBA Draft, playing three seasons with the team that drafted him, the New Jersey Nets. He averaged 15.8 points per game in the 1989-90 season and was then traded to the Chicago Bulls, where he was a member of the 1991 NBA Champions. He was traded to Sacramento in the 1991-92 season and played 69 games with the Kings before the end of his NBA career. He went on to play seven years overseas before retiring in 1999.
