Darryl Proctor is one of six former Retriever student-athletes that will be inducted into the UMBC Athletics Hall of Fame on Saturday, Jan. 31. In just two short years, the former basketball standout made a huge impact on the Retriever athletic program.
Proctor was selected as UMBC's Male Athlete of the Year in 2008-09 and earned America East Conference First Team and All-Tournament Team honors as a senior after scoring 639 points, the most in a single season in UMBC history. He finished the year 26th in the nation with 20.0 points per game and also set the UMBC Division I single-season record for rebounds in a season with 280.
After transferring to UMBC from Coppin State, Proctor earned America East First Team and All-Tournament Team honors in his junior season as UMBC won the America East title. The two-year team captain in both of his seasons at UMBC scored over 1,100 points (17.5 ppg, the highest figure in school history) in his two seasons and scored in double figures in each of the last 40 games of his career.
