2010 NBA Draft: Conference USA Players Hoping to Hear Their Name


The 2010 NBA Draft could be huge for Conference USA.  Really, Hassan Whiteside and Elliot Williams could both go in the lottery.  Jerome Jordan, Ben Uzoh, Elijah Millsap, and of course, Derrick Caracter could all hear their names anywhere from the late first to 2nd round. I, of course, only root for Caracter during the season, but tonight, I'm rooting for all of these guys.  We, as members of a non-BCS league, need all the good press and publicity we can get.

Also, we need to show that C-USA is more than a one team show in basketball.  Having guys from UAB, UTEP, and Tulsa get drafted helps highlight the depth this league formed last season.

DraftExpress is a great site that covers NBA draft prospects from top to bottom.  I don't have the time to profile each of these players, but I wanted to be be sure to direct UTEP and C-USA fans to these previews going into tonight's draft.
