Career highlights and awards

Brett Roberts (born March 24, 1970) is a former American basketball player best remembered for leading NCAA Division I in scoring as a senior in 1991–92 and then getting selected by the Sacramento Kings in that year's NBA draft, although he ultimately never played a game in the league. Roberts grew up in Portsmouth, Ohio and attended South Webster High School before moving on to play for Morehead State University's basketball team.

A 6 ft 8 in (2.03 m) small forward, Roberts averaged 16.7 points per game for his four-year career.[1] Through his first three seasons he averaged no more than around 14 points per game.[1] Then, in his senior season in 1991–92, Roberts jumped from an average of 14.5 per game the year before to a nation-leading 28.1 points per game, doubling his output in a single season.[1][2] He was named the Ohio Valley Conference Men's Basketball Player of the Year and was even selected in the NBA Draft.[3]

Baseball career[edit]

Despite being drafted, Roberts never made any teams' final rosters. He eventually became an assistant principal at his old high school, forgoing any professional aspirations.[4] In 1991, Roberts was also selected by the Minnesota Twins in the fourth round (103rd overall) of the Major League Baseball amateur entry draft.[5]
