Ronald Shavlik Randolph (born November 24, 1983) is an American professional basketball player who currently plays for the Phoenix Suns of the National Basketball Association (NBA). He played college basketball for Duke University before going undrafted in the 2005 NBA draft.

In addition to playing in the NBA, Randolph has played many fine seasons overseas in China and Puerto Rico, having averaged a league-high 32.0 points per game during the 2012–13 CBA season and was ranked in the top-five for rebounds per game in both his seasons in the Baloncesto Superior Nacional.[1]

High school career[edit]

Randolph attended Broughton High School in Raleigh, North Carolina where he became an instant star. He famously scored 56 points in a game to surpass Broughton High alum Pete Maravich's all-time single-game record and later, passed him in career points, rebounds and blocks as well.[2]

Randolph received numerous awards during his high school career. He was a McDonald's All-American, two-time Parade All-American, and a two-time Associated Press North Carolina Player of the Year. As a junior in 2000–01, he averaged 27.9 points and 13.2 rebounds per game. As a senior in 2001–02, he averaged 30 points, 14 rebounds and five blocks per game.[3]

As a senior, Randolph was rated as the #6 power forward in the nation by Scout.com.[4]

College career[edit]

Randolph started his college career with Duke by scoring a team-high 23 points and adding 7 rebounds in his November 23, 2002 debut against Army.[5] Two days later, Randolph posted his first double-double against Davidson.[6] Randolph's performance, however, started to decline after this stellar start, only scoring in double figures in five other games for the rest of the season. He suffered from numerous injuries which limited his playing time. He played in twenty-six games his freshman year (with six starts), averaging 7.4 points and 3.9 rebounds per game.[7]

In May 2003, Randolph had successful surgery on his left hip to correct a labral tear and bone spur.[3] In his sophomore year, Randolph played in all 37 of Duke's games, averaging 7.0 points, 4.5 rebounds and 1.6 blocks per game.[7] Randolph's game excelled during Duke's 2004 run to the Final Four. In the opening round, Randolph posted 20 points, 8 rebounds and 2 steals against Alabama State.[8] Randolph also played well in the national semi-final game against UConn, scoring 13 points on 6-for-6 shooting with six rebounds and one blocked shot.[9]

In his junior year, Randolph averaged 4.4 points and 4.3 rebounds in 29 games (18.9 mpg), having sat out four games during the season after being diagnosed with mononucleosis, and slowly worked his way back into the rotation. He eventually returned to his starting role, giving the Blue Devils another inside presence to go with center Shelden Williams.[3]

On May 13, 2005, Randolph declared for the NBA draft, foregoing his final year of college eligibility.[10] In his three-year career at Duke, he played 92 games (36 starts) while averaging 6.3 points, 4.3 rebounds and 1.4 blocks per game. He was also a member of two ACC regular season championships, two ACC tournament championships, and one Final Four appearance.
