Colby has 11 players and coaches inducted in the first three years of the Maine Basketball Hall of Fame.
McGee was an All-American during his sophomore season and was the fastest player in school history to reach 1,000 points. He ranks 15th in career scoring at Colby with 1,251 points, despite playing just 76 games and competing at a time with no 3-point shot. McGee, who went on to a terrific high school coaching career, was inducted into the New England Basketball Hall of Fame in 2013.
Storey was a two-time All-American in 1983 and 1985. He still ranks fourth all-time in scoring at Colby with 1,710 points in 92 games. Storey, who also did not play with the 3-point shot, is a member of the New England Basketball Hall of Fame.
 
Whitmore transferred from Dartmouth College and scored 1,357 points at Colby in three seasons. He currently ranks 13th all-time in scoring, was a 1991 All-American, and averaged more than 60 made 3-point shots (188 total) during his three years.
McGee, Storey, and Whitmore all played under Colby coaching legend Dick Whitmore. Kevin Whitmore is the son of Coach Whitmore.
Brad Moore '75, Matt Hancock '90, Dick Whitmore, and former assistant basketball coach John "Swisher" Mitchell were inducted in 2014. Former players Gene Hunter '48, Ted Shiro '51, John Edes '58, and Ed Marchetti '60 were inductees in 2015.
