Jamaal Magloire

A year ago, Magloire actually tested his NBA worth and attended the league's pre-draft camp in Chicago. Most Kentucky fans assumed the worst, that he would turn pro. Magloire surprised people by returning to Kentucky. The decision was a smart one. Magloire had a solid senior season and probably improved his draft standing. Magloire, whose rough play occasionally got him into trouble at Kentucky, left behind some numbers. He played in 145 games, second in school history and fourth all-time. He was the school's career leader in blocked shots (268) and was fifth in SEC history in that stat. Magloire's 37 blocks in NCAA tournament play tied Alonzo Mourning for third all time. This season, Magloire improved his somewhat mechanical offensive game, averaged 13.5 points. He led the SEC in rebounding (9.1) and was third in blocked shots. Magloire was a first-team All-SEC pick.
