Luke Recker went undrafted. In the 2001-2002, Recker averaged more points and more rebounds than Savovic. They are the same height. They played the same position. Recker played in a tougher conference.

Now, I have no idea who this guy is because I don't follow Iowa basketball. But then, I only knew who Savovic was because I saw him toss 29 points down on SMU.

But needless to say, I am shocked.

And no, Dirk77, we will never let this go.

All in good fun.

At least until something more fun comes along.

Wasn't Recker a guy who transferred from Indiana during Bobby Knight's tenure?

Yep.



And he's younger too. Shocking.

transferred from indiana to arizona. before he even played a game for arizona, he got in a horrible car accident. his girlfriend at the time (also in the car) ended up paralyzed. recker was in the hospital for a while. no serious injuries, but he did have to have reconstructive surgery on his ear. he then transferred to iowa to be closer to home...

anyway, both he and reggie evans are good players that played in a tough conference, but neither got drafted. recker is a great shooter and can get to the hole, but if i recall, his FG% is kinda low.

what about aaron mcghee? not drafted. SHOCKING!
