As a Junior (2002-03)
Had a break-out season, moving into the starting lineup midway through C-USA play and establishing himself as a potent shooting threat. Buried 42.5 percent (34-of-80) of his three-point attempts to rank fifth in Conference USA. That percentage is also the second-best in school history. Started 10 straight games before breaking a bone in his foot which limited him to 24 minutes in the final four games of the year. Recorded eight double-figure scoring games and had the first double-double of his career with 12 points and 12 boards against UAB (1/25). Topped his best SEASON in scoring and rebounding after just five games, while surpassing his top season in minutes (160) in just 12 games. Limited to just 11 minutes due to injury in the Houston tournament victory (3/12), but still managed to hit four-of-five three-point efforts. Hit four three-pointers in the final 10:13 of the Houston victory (2/26), three of which tied the game or put the Green Wave on top. Exploded for a career-high 20 points on 6-of-8 shooting, including 4-of-6 from three-point range, against Morris Brown (1/4). Also added career-highs of six rebounds and three assists in just 14 minutes.

As a Sophomore (2001-2002)
Played in 17 games as a sophomore. Registered a big night against TCU (2/26) with nine points on a trio of three-pointers. Snagged three rebounds with a pair of assists against Houston (1/8). Had three points (all from the line) and four rebounds against Vanderbilt (12/10). Notched nine points with three rebounds in a career-high 21 minutes against Florida (12/2). Scored four points with a pair of rebounds against VCU (11/27). Added five points and two rebounds against Centenary (11/20).

As a Freshman (2000-2001)
