? This last collegiate season is his first-ever away from identical twin brother Jarvis, a 1st-round NBA draft pick of the Washington Wizards last June.

? Scored a then-career-high 20 points in two of the season?s first three games. It matched his freshman-year performance of 20 while playing for Western Carolina.
? A lone offensive bright spot in loss to Pittsburgh, sinking his first five shots en route to a team-high 16 points.
? Missed over half of pre-season practice with a high ankle sprain. Recovered in time to contribute 27 minutes off the bench in the season opener vs. Western Carolina.

2002-03 Season
? A 5-game starter at center who played admirably despite being undersized in almost every contest.

? Followed up the miracle in Colorado with his best game of the season, getting 16 points and six boards in a career-high 41 minutes vs. Cal.
