BIOGRAPHY: Forbes spent his first two college seasons at Virginia before transferring to Massachusetts for his final two years. He led the Minutemen with a scoring average of 19.4 points as a senior and was named Atlantic 10 Player of the Year. Forbes is one of just two Minutemen to score 1,000 points in their only two seasons in school, joining Hall of Fame guard Julius Erving. As a junior, Forbes ranked third on the team with 13.0 points per game. In his two seasons at Virginia, Forbes was mainly a reserve and averaged 8.1 points before deciding to transfer. A plus for Forbes was his international experience playing for Panama in the 2007 FIBA Americas tournament. He averaged 17.8 points in four games, including a 29-point performance against silver medalist Argentina. His stock has been on the rise recently after Forbes was named to the all-tournament team at the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament in April. He averaged 15.7 points, 7.0 rebounds and led all players with 8.7 assists per game. His playmaking ability at his size came as a revelation since he had more turnovers (113) than assists (109) as a senior in college. Forbes' biggest strength is his versatility since he has shown he can play all three perimeter positions. But his biggest weakness is his perimeter shot - Forbes shot a woeful 29 percent on 3-pointers as a senior. Although Forbes is not a great talent, his overall skill set and workmanlike attitude could make him a possible second-round selection.
