The cornerstone of head coach Elwin Heiny’s program in the mid-1980's, Lauri Landerholm was one of the most decorated players in Oregon women’s basketball history. A native of Gresham, Ore., she finished her career as the third-leading scorer in program history and one of just six players with more than 1,000 points (1,783). She was named Pac-10 Player of the Year in 1987, and earned recognition on the All-Conference team four times. While leading her team in assists, steals, and free throw percentage four years and scoring three years, her teams were quite successful as well, posting a cumulative 81-35 record in her four years of competition.
Chosen team MVP three times, Landerholm also won the Harry Ritchie Scholar-Athlete Award twice, and the prestigious Jackson Award, given annually to the top female senior student-athlete. She finished her career ranked first for games played, assists, and free throw percentage (.810), and among the top 10 in many other categories. She also competed in track and field, setting the school record in the heptathlon with 4,948 points as a freshman.
