HOUSTON -- St. John's all-time leading scorer, Chris Mullin, was among 10 honorees named to the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame Monday.

Mullin, who now is an NBA analyst for ESPN, also was a member of the gold medal-winning 1984 U.S. Olympic team, and he is the ninth player or coach with ties to St. John's to be named to the Hall of Fame.
