Jameer Nelson – Saint Joseph (2000-2004)
Jameer Nelson was good during his first three seasons at Saint Joseph University. But Nelson was great in his senior year. The point guard averaged 20.6 ppg and 5.3 assists. Although he averaged an assist more in his freshman and sophomore seasons, the slight dip showed Nelson had become a more important point scorer for the Hawks.
His 2004 feats on the hardwood were rewarded with several accolades. Nelson was honored with the Atlantic 10 Player of the Year, Wooden, Naismith, and Bob Cousy awards. His No. 14 was also retired. G: 125 Pts: 16.8 Reb: 4.6
