Jonny Flynn (Syracuse)
As a freshman at Syracuse in 2007, point guard Jonny Flynn took college basketball by storm. In his very first game, Flynn scored 28 points, breaking Carmelo Anthony’s record for most points in a freshman’s debut. With expectations high entering his sophomore season, Flynn did not disappoint. In one of the most memorable college basketball games ever, Flynn led the Orange (37 points, 11 assists) to a 127-117 win in six overtimes against Big East rival UConn… Impressed by his leadership and ability to get to the basket, the Minnesota Timberwolves selected Flynn with the 6th-overall pick in the 2009 NBA Draft. Unfortunately, Flynn lasted only four seasons in the NBA, with stints in Minnesota, Houston, and Portland. His NBA career was over by the age of 23.
