Hall of Fame Class of 2006
Kim Goetz, who starred for the Aztecs from 1978-79, is one of the greatest shooters in San Diego State men's basketball history. Known during his playing days as "The Long Ranger," Goetz led the team in scoring in both of his two seasons in the Scarlet and Black. He was an all-Western Athletic Conference selection in 1979, averaging over 20 points a contest and logging a school-record 90.2 free-throw percentage. Goetz tallied three of the top 10 scoring games in school history, including a 44-point effort against Utah in 1979, and finished his two-year career with 1,005 points.
Goetz remains prominent in the SDSU career record books, ranking first in free-throw percentage (85.4), second in scoring average (18.6) and eighth in field-goal attempts (852). A second round draft pick of the New York Knicks, he is currently a teacher at San Pasqual High School in Escondido, Calif.
