Notes: 2007: Selected by Memphis in 1st round (4th overall) of the NBA Draft...2011: Re-signed with Memphis to a five-year deal worth $40 million, Nov. 2nd...2013: NBA All-Defensive Second Team.
Teamed with phenom Greg Oden to form one of the most exciting tandems in college basketball this past season at Ohio State...Conley Jr. was a huge reason why the Buckeyes made it all the way to the NCAA championship game...An honorable mention All-American according to the AP, as he helped OSU to the top ranking in the nation during the campaign and also the Big Ten Conference title for the second year in a row...A member of the All-Big Ten Freshman Team, Conley Jr. was one of only two players on the team to start all 39 games and finished third in scoring with 11.3 ppg...Had one of the best assist-to-turnover ratios in recent history in the Big Ten, as he handed out a team-best
238 assists and was guilty of a mere 86 miscues while playing close to 32 minutes per contest...A 51.8 percent shooter from the field, Conley Jr. knocked down just 30.4 percent out on the perimeter, but made up for it with almost three and a half rebounds per game and had better than twice as many steals (87) as any of his teammates...Although still young and a bit raw, Conley Jr. showed the sort of poise at the point position that many pro teams
would love to have on the roster and has cemented his spot as a top-five selection.
