Ogden, Bud

Bud Ogden ’69 was inducted into the seventh annual West Coast Conference 2015 Hall of Honor class. Ogden was a catalyst for the Santa Clara men's basketball team amidst one of its most successful runs in program history. He proudly represented the Broncos from 1966-1969 and led Santa Clara to two NCAA tournament appearances.  Ogden was named to the WCC All-Conference first team in 1968 and 1969, which followed a second team selection in 1967. Furthermore, Ogden was honored as an All-American selection in 1969 by the Helms Foundation and the USBWA as he led the Broncos to a No. 3 national ranking.

Ogden etched his name in the Santa Clara and WCC record books as one of the all-time greats. His 55 points against Pepperdine in 1967 still ranks tops amongst single game scoring performances at Santa Clara and is the third most all-time in a WCC game. Three other Santa Clara records he holds from that game include most points in a half, most points by a sophomore, and most field goals scored in a single game.  Ogden ranks 14th in Santa Clara history with 1,437 points scored and sits 10th all-time in rebounds with 694. Ogden's scoring average of 18.2 points per game ranks third all-time in Santa Clara history.

Labozetta, Bob (Labozetta)

Bob Labozetta ’69, MA ’75 writes: "After 33+ years teaching at the secondary and lately the community college level, I have retired my chalk and white board pens, closed my grading software, and boxed my PowerPoint presentations and lessons. The last six years my wife, Susan, and I resided in Oregon, and last summer decided to chuck it all and travel full-time. We sold our home and most of our possessions, bought a motorhome, and now see the USA (but not in a Chevrolet). While Susan continues her art (sculpture), I may put my SCU education to work by writing who-knows-what. Figuring out how to brew beer on the road, fishing across this great land, and viewing historical sites that I discussed in the classroom but never took the opportunity to visit are prominent objectives as well."
