Biography: Machado, an AP honorable mention All-American, led the nation in assists this past season as a senior at Iona with 9.9 per game to edge out fellow draft prospect Kendall Marshall of North Carolina. Machado was named the Metro Atlantic Athletic Conference player of the year for a Gaels team that led the nation in scoring (82.9 points per game) and assists (19.3 per game), went 25-8 and received the school's second-ever at-large berth into the NCAA tournament. A finalist for the Bob Cousy Award as one of the nation's top point guards, Machado also earned the Haggerty Award as the best Division I player in the New York metropolitan area. He improved dramatically as a playmaker over his last two seasons, averaging 8.7 assists as a junior and senior compared to 4.4 over his freshman and sophomore campaigns. Machado also shot a career-best 49.5 percent overall and 40.4 percent on 3-pointers in 2011-12. A pass-first point guard, Machado does not possess great size to get his shot off. He is not considered a great defensive player and will be hard-pressed to try to slow down quicker point guards because of his size. Machado projects as a possible second-round pick who could blossom into a quality backup.
