As a freshman, he averaged 13.0 points and 9.5 rebounds.
He continued his playing career at the University of Alabama, starting 20 of 29 games as a junior and 29 of 31 as a senior.
McGhee also played several seasons in international pro leagues.
He becomes the second member from the 1995 Cardinals to be inducted into the Cardinal Hall of Fame, joining Tyrone Foster (2010).
