For Sean Singletary, the wait is almost over. The former Cavalier has his eye on being selected in the NBA Draft, which will take place next Thursday, June 26, in New York City. Though he is projected to go in the second round, if at all, by many experts, Singletary still looks to earn a spot on an NBA team.
The former Virginia star has proven his worthiness to go pro, as Singletary averaged 19.8 points per game last season, good enough for third in the ACC. He is a three time All ACC First Team member, and played in 34 minutes per contest during his senior season. Singletary scored a career high 41 points on March 1st at Miami, and eclipsed the 2,000 point mark in the Cavaliers' final regular season game against Maryland.
He also left his mark in conference history. Singletary is the only player in ACC history to score 2,000 points, dish out 500 assists, pull down 400 rebounds, and tally 200 steals in his career. He also set a school record by scoring in double figures in the last 55 games of his career.
On June 18, 2007, Singletary announced that he was withdrawing his name from the NBA Draft in order to return to Virginia for his senior season.
