Forward, #55


Mike Higgins is a member of the University of Northern Colorado Athletic Hall of Fame. As of 2005, he was still the school’s all-time leader in several categories, including scoring (2,112 points), and was the only Bear to go on to have an NBA career, albeit a brief one.

He came to the Lakers as an undrafted free agent in November 1989 and had one point, one rebound, one steal, one assist and two blocked shots during his six-game stay in Los Angeles. He played a total of 12 more NBA games with two other teams before a long professional basketball career overseas.
