Consensus first-team All-America in 2007-08, when he led Tigers with 18.1 points per game. (First Tiger to receive such honor since Penny Hardaway in 1992-93.) Also led Tigers in scoring as sophomore in 2006-07, with 15.4 ppg. Herky-jerky style as a slasher; quick release allowed him to convert off-balance shots. Known as CDR from his first game as a freshman, now ranks ninth on Tiger alltime scoring chart (1,545 points in three years). First-team all-conference selection as sophomore and junior; 2008 C-USA Player of the Year. Member of three C-USA champs (both regular-season and tournament); MVP of 2007 tourney. A 72-percent free-throw shooter for his career, missed three late foul shots in 2008 NCAA championship game, allowing Kansas to tie and eventually win game in overtime. Second-round selection of New Jersey Nets in 2008 NBA draft.
