William Izett Buchanan (born May 8, 1972) is an American expatriate professional basketball player.
Buchanan then went on to play basketball at Marist College from 1990 to 1995. During his four-year career he scored 1,593 points, including a school single game-record 51 against Long Island during the 1993–94 season. That same year, he set a season record with 645 points en route to being named the Northeast Conference Men's Basketball Player of the Year He also shared the Haggerty Award with Artūras Karnišovas of Seton Hall. Sports Illustrated named him their national player of the week for that effort. He finished his Marist career in the top 10 of other major statistical categories, including career steals (137), rebounds (613), scoring average (16.6), free throws made (390).
In April of his senior year, Buchanan was charged in Poughkeepsie, New York with spending more than $1,000 in credit cards he allegedly stole. This did not affect his NCAA eligibility or cause any repercussion for him with the Marist basketball program.
