Small Biography
is a retired American basketball player who played at the shooting guard position in the NBA from 19862000. He attended Lyons Township High School in LaGrange, Illinois, graduating in 1981. He led his team to the Illinois Sweet 16 in his senior year coached by Ron Nikcevich and still holds individual team records in free throw shooting. Also played shortstop for the baseball team. Redshirted at Iowa State University (ISU) in 1981, he was a campus walk-on from 19821986, the son of a high school basketball coach became an all-conference player in the Big Eight Conference, playing for legendary coach Johnny Orr. As a point guard he guided the Cyclones to the Sweet 16 of the 1986 NCAA tournament. His shining moment came at the Metrodome in Minneapolis, Minnesota when, after first hitting a shot to tie the game and send it to overtime, Jeff hit the game winning shot in overtime, a 26-ft jumper at the buzzer, to give ISU its first NCAA tournament victory since 1944, beating Miami (Ohio), March 14 1986, 81-79 (Ron Harper was the starting shooting guard for Miami). Two days later, he led the Cyclones to the NCAA Tournament "Sweet Sixteen," in a 72-69 upset of second seed Michigan. Orr, who left Michigan to coach at Iowa State, called it the greatest victory of his career. Hornacek left ISU with a Big-8 record of 665 career assists, still an Iowa State school record, and 1,313 career points. He was the 22nd pick in the second round (46th overall) of the 1986 NBA Draft, by the Phoenix Suns. He became a star for the Suns, but after his sixth and most productive season, he was traded (along with Andrew Lang and Tim Perry) to the Philadelphia 76ers for Charles Barkley. With Hersey Hawkins, the Sixers' leading scorer, in the shooting guard position, Hornacek was assigned point guard responsibilities. Although he had a career high 6.9 assists per game in his only complete season with the Sixers (1992-1993 season), his stint as a point guard was not a success (26 wins, 56 losses). Midway through the 1993-1994 season (February 24) he was traded to the Utah Jazz (for Jeff Malone) where he could return to his natural shooting guard position alongside John Stockton. Hornacek was also one of the best on offense in the NBA in moving without the ball, something essential for a shooting guard. He was an instrumental part of the Jazz's drive to the NBA Finals in 1997 and 1998, where the Jazz lost to the Chicago Bulls both times. He remained with the Jazz until knee problems forced his retirement in 2000. On 23 November 1994, he set a then-NBA record with eight consecutive three-pointers in a single game without a miss against the Seattle SuperSonics. That same season, he also tied an NBA record 11 consecutive three-pointers without a miss, from December 30, 1994 through 11 January 1995. One of the best free throw shooters in the league, once making 67 in a row (12 November 1999 January 6, 2000), one of his most well-known mannerisms was stroking his cheek three times before every free-throw attempt. That was his way of saying hello to his three children during the game.He holds a career free throw percentage of 87.7, 12th highest in NBA history. Hornacek won the NBA three-point competition twice, and along with Natalie Williams, star of the Utah Starzz, won the All-Star 2-Ball Challenge.Hornacek's #14 jersey was retired by the Utah Jazz, for whom he played from 1994 to 2000, and helped get them to the NBA Finals in 1997 and 1998. Coach Jerry Sloan and Jazz announcer "Hot Rod" Hundley referred to Hornacek affectionately as "Horny". He was hired for the 2007-2008 season by the Jazz to be as a special assistant coach and to help Andrei Kirilenko and others with their shooting.In May 2008 he interviewed for a coaching position with the Chicago Bulls, meeting with general manager John Paxson. He put off seeking a coaching position until his kids were older so the extensive travel wouldn't put excess pressure on the family.Hornacek currently resides in Paradise Valley, Arizona with wife Stacy and their children, Ryan (20), Tyler (18) and Abigail (14). Ryan attends the University of Notre Dame, Tyler attends Brophy College Preparatory, and Abigail Xavier College Preparatory.
