Pasadena Sports Hall of Fame

In 1979,  Pasadena High School defeated Verbum Dei High School -  the number one ranked boy's basketball team in the country. The Bulldogs' reward, a  CIF Championship. The Bulldogs would later travel to Spain and win the World High School Basketball Championship. Their coach, George Terzian, was also crowned the California State Coach of the Year.  


George Terzian coached the boy's basketball program at Pasadena High School for 17 years.  Two CIF Championships and four CIF finals appearances were the results. Former NBA players Michael Cooper and Michael Holton both played and won under Mr. Terzian's leadership.


After leaving Pasadena High School in 1979, Mr. Terzian coached boy's basketball at    Pasadena  City  College - he would do so for

the next 18 years or so.   Between 1987 to 1994, and briefly in 2002, Mr. Terzian accumulated 300 wins which includes seven straight appearances in the State playoffs.  In fact, in 1982, he lead the Lancer's to a 28-8 record  - ending the season as State runner-up after losing a double overtime thriller to Cerritos College in the championship final. Local legends such as Darnell Fletcher, Dale Cook, Forest McKenzie and Chris Holden are among the many coached by Mr. Terzian.
