- IUPUI Athletics Hall of Fame (2018)
Reggie Butler (1978-83), a Chicago-native, was one of the IUPUI basketball program's first true star players. He averaged 11.4 points per game as a sophomore in 1979-80 and nearly replicated those numbers as a junior in 1980-81, helping the program for its first-ever winning record. He missed the 1981-82 season due to injury but returned to average double-digits as a senior in 1982-83 while serving as team captain on head coach Bob Lovell's first IUPUI team.
He was a four-year starter and was named Team MVP and the first-ever recipient of the Mel Garland Award in 1983. He later played professionally in Switzerland and France before returning to the states to begin his entrepreneurial career. He graduated with his degree in sociology and is now VP of Global Trade & Banking at BMO Capital Markets.
