Mihm called it one of the toughest decisions he ever had to make. Ultimately, the lure of being a certain lottery pick was too much for Mihm, and in a press conference on May 12, he announced he was leaving school. This was no conditional testing of the waters. Mihm fully intended to leave and began interviewing agents immediately. Mihm will be a solid pro with a long career. He's a multi-talented player who improved his post game under Barnes, adding a hook and fine-tuning his turnaround jumper. He averaged a double-double (18 points, 10 rebounds) as a junior at Texas and was chosen a consensus first-team All-American. Mihm didn't drift out on the perimeter too often, but he knocked down 46 percent of his 3-pointers while shooting .523 from the field. He led Texas with blocked shots and leaves school with every record in that department: Career (264), game (eight) and season average (2.8). He's the only player in Texas history to score 1,100 points, grab 800 boards and block 200 shots.
