Biography: Torrance played four years at Alabama, becoming a starter for good halfway through his junior season and improving with each campaign. He wasn't named to the all-conference team after averaging 15.6 points as a senior, although he earned second team All-SEC honors from league coaches. Torrance improved his perimeter stroke considerably, shooting a career-high 35.8 percent on 3-pointers this past season. His overall field-goal percentage was also a career high at 47.0 percent. Torrance created some positive buzz with a strong all-around effort at the Portsmouth Invitational Tournament, tying for fifth among all players by averaging 17.3 points and tying for fourth in assists with 6.0 per game to earn all-tournament honors. Scouts left raving about his toughness, athleticism and fearless attitude. The impressive showing there has vaulted him into consideration to become a second-round NBA draft pick, and he has been compared favorably to NBA players such as Maurice Evans and Matt Barnes. There are questions about whether he can fare well at the next level since he had poor career numbers against the NBA talent at Kentucky, shooting 21.6 percent in five career games.
