Reason II. The University of Washington Huskies has a stellar reputation of landing players into the NBA

Whether or not Lorenzo Romar is at the helm, the NBA has established the University of Washington Huskies as a source for NBA caliber talent. Of all the college basketball players in the US, only 60 are fortunate enough to hear their name called at the NBA Draft each year.

  • Since 2005, 12 players from the University of Washington have been selected in the NBA Draft. That is an average of one player per year.   In 2016, both Marquese Chriss and Dejounte Murray were selected in the first round.  That’s an amazing accomplishment for a non-NCAA tournament team.

    But there is more at work than just an NBA contract in the works.  Every basketball player wants to step onto the “big stage”.  An NBA basketball court is the destination of each young player from the moment they make their first dribble.  Unfortunately, there is not “secret sauce” to achieve that dream.

    There are paths. Worn and trodden by the hopefuls who came before. And the path through UW appears to lead to the NBA.

    It’s no compromise to follow in the footsteps of others who have gotten where you wish to go. In fact, it’s a wise choice.
