Pete Padgett

Peter L. "Pete" Padgett (born June 15, 1954) is a American high school basketball coach. He is best known, however, for his playing career between 1972–73 and 1975–76 while on the Nevada Wolf Pack men's basketball team. Pete Padgett played for his father, Jim Padgett, the head coach at Nevada. Padgett, who is 6 ft 8 in (2.03 m), played the power forward position and became one of the most statistically accomplished players in school history. Padgett was selected to the all-conference second team during his freshman year, then was subsequently picked as a first team all-conference member for his final three seasons. Padgett led the West Coast Athletic Conference in rebounding all four seasons and finished his career with 1,464 total, a sum good enough to place him in the top ten all-time in the NCAA's modern era. Although rebounding was his specialty, Padgett finished his career with 1,642 points, which at the time was the third-highest in school history. He also set a conference-record by accumulating 784 assists (in conference games only). As a senior he was honored with the Doc Martie Award, given annually to the University of Nevada's top male athlete.
