Notes:
Named to the Wooden Award Mid-Season Top 30 during a senior campaign in which he placed second on Syracuse in scoring with 13.1 ppg and was first on the glass with 10.3 rpg, the latter ranking him first in the Big East Conference and 17th nationally...A 2010-11 preseason Big East Honorable Mention choice after he started all 35 games for the Orange as a junior...One of the top field goal shooters (.588) in the league last season, he led the Orange in blocked shots (86) and was third in both assists (77) and steals (47), showing off a diverse skill set that could be useful at the next level...Shot a league-best 66.7 percent from the floor in Big East matchups as a sophomore...One drawback to his game is that he shot just 53.3 percent at the free-throw line as a senior, a level of accuracy that made him a liability on the floor late in tight games...Certainly the strength to his game is his ability to rebound, but considering how many minutes he logs in order to collect those boards, there are still several players in the draft who have had much better success in that area.
