|Name|| Solomon Alabi|
|College|| Florida State|
|Home Town|| Kaduna, Nigeria|
|High School|| Montverde Academy (FL)|
A two-time ACC All-Defensive team selection in 2009 and 2010, leading the ACC in blocked shots in each campaign...Alabi, who decided to forgo his final two seasons at Florida State, became the first Seminole to lead the ACC in blocked shots and is just the ninth player in conference history to do so in back-to-back seasons...One of only three players in the ACC to be named to the All-Defensive Team in both 2009 and 2010...Alabi earned All-ACC Third Team honors as a redshirt sophomore when he averaged 11.7 ppg, 6.2 rpg and recorded a career-best 75 rejections through 32 outings...Named to the Freshmen All-America Honorable Mention team, the All-ACC Freshman Team, and the All-ACC Tournament Second Team as he helped lead the Seminoles to the NCAA Tournament for the first time in nearly a decade (1998), and into the championship game
of the ACC Tournament for the first time in school history...Shot 54 percent from the field in 2008-09, putting up 8.4 ppg and adding 5.6 rpg and better than two blocks per contest...A bit sloppy with the ball, Alabi totaled just 28 assists in his 77 college games, but was tagged with 128 turnovers during that span...Clearly has the height to be a force in the paint for any team at the next level, but his skill set is still rather week and could have used additional time at FSU to improve his prospects.
2010: Selected by Dallas in 2nd round (50th overall) of the NBA Draft; Traded to Toronto for cash consideration, June 24th.
