Players such as Christian Laettner and Mateen Cleaves led their teams to the Final Four during their college careers. But what are these former NCAA standouts doing now?
As a freshman sharpshooter, Gerry McNamara helped the Syracuse Orange to a NCAA title in 2003. McNamara totaled 19 points and 4 steals to go along with teammate Carmelo Anthony's 33 points in a 95-84 semifinal victory over Texas and then hit six three-pointers in the first half of the title game versus the Kansas Jayhawks. Those 18 points were McNamara's total for the game, helping Syracuse to a 81-78 victory. Anthony, who scored 21 points in the win and is now an NBA superstar, won Most Outstanding Player honors, but both he and McNamara were named to the All-Tournament team.
