Andrew Darius Goudelock (born December 7, 1988) is an American professional basketball player who plays for Fenerbahçe Ülker of the Turkish Basketball League (TBL). Standing at 6 ft 3 in (1.91 m), he plays the shooting guard position.

He played college basketball with the College of Charleston Cougars, when he was named the Southern Conference Player of the Year in 2011. Goudelock was drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers in the second round of the 2011 NBA Draft. He played one season for them before playing with Sioux Falls Skyforce and then Rio Grande Valley Vipers in the NBA Development League in 2012–13, winning the NBA Development League Most Valuable Player Award. He was re-signed by the Lakers towards the end of the 2012–13 season. Towards the end of his stint with the Lakers, he started in the last two playoffs games against the Spurs due to many injuries.

His nickname is "Mini Mamba", due to the similarity of his playing style with Kobe Bryant.[1]

College career[edit]

During his senior season at the College of Charleston, Goudelock averaged 23.4 points and was the fourth highest scoring player in the nation.[2] Goudelock's 40.7 percent three-point average was the nation's second highest; he scored 131 of his 322 three-point attempts.[3] Goudelock was voted an honorable mentio2011, including shooting 8-12 on 3-pointers, in front of a sellout crowd in the first round of the NIT Tournament. The Cougars were playing the Dayton Flyers in the first round of the 2011 NIT Tournament. The game, which the Cougars won 94-84, was Goudelock's last game at home in Carolina First Arena (now TD Arena).

Goudelock became known for his tremendous range and his ability to hit three-pointers well beyond the college (and NBA) three-point line. One of Goudelock's breakout games came on January 4, 2010 against the Defending National Champions UNC, in which he hit a game-tying three with less than 3 seconds left and led the Cougars to an eventual 72-69 win in overtime at Carolina First Arena.

He was the 5th leading scorer in NCAA Division I for his senior year.[4] During his four-year career, Goudelock appeared in 140 games (124 starts), averaging 18.4 points, 3.3 rebounds and 3.0 assists.[5]
