"I'm proud of Kendall for earning this opportunity," Tulane head coach Ed Conroy said. "He certainly did earn it, there is no question about that. Kendall Timmons had a productive career by any measure. I always remember his determination and the courage to come back from a really tough injury and to get back in time to have a good senior season."
Timmons finished his collegiate career with 1,325 points and 639 rebounds, ranking 16th in scoring in Green Wave history and 15th in rebounding. The Fort Worth, Texas, native played in 120 games at Tulane with 97 starts and poured in a career-high 33 points and grabbed a career-best 19 rebounds in a game as a junior.
