Biography: The nation's leading scorer in 2009-10, Coleman averaged 25.6 points as a senior to lead his hometown Houston Cougars to their first NCAA tournament appearance in 18 years. After starring at Southwest Mississippi Community College for two seasons, Coleman averaged 19.4 points for Houston as a junior in 2008-09, then stepped it up this season. A solid mid-range shooter who usually seems to find his way to the basket, Coleman recorded nine games of 30 points or more as a senior. He's also a solid defensive player, having led Conference USA this season with 2.7 steals per game. While Coleman earned his success as a true scorer, he's strictly a wing player who is a bit undersized for the NBA game. Coleman shot 42.6 percent from the field for his career and 29.2 percent from 3-point range during two seasons at Houston. His inconsistency and overall lack of size are reasons Coleman would be fortunate to get selected late in the second round. He could get a shot as an undrafted free agent but must really win over a team with his ability to spread the floor as an outside shooter in order to stick in the league.
