robert-dozier 2009 NBA Draft - The Draft Review miami 2009 NBA Draft - The Draft Review
Player Background
By Matthew Maurer
1/6/09

Dozier's rise in basketball came rather late. It was at an age when top prospects are discovered before they finish the 8th grade. He was initially more interested in baseball than hoops but his 6-inch growth spurt after freshmen year led him to rethink his athletic options.

Dozier's sophomore year was nothing more than an experiment as his new found body lacked coordination, but by the time he entered junior year the clumsiness that plagued him was a thing of the past. His tremendous AAU play during the Kingwood Classic really opened up college coaches eyes around the nation, including head coach John Calipari who offered him a scholarship which Dozier immediately accepted. But with the explosion of his stock heading into senior year Dozier decided to re-open his recruitment because he felt he rushed things.

The top 100 prospect committed to the University of Georgia with their offer of playing time. After graduating from Lithonia High School, Georgia's admissions flagged Dozier's SAT because of it's significantly high score. He re-took the test only to score dramatically lower. With his academics out of order he made his way to Laurinburg Prep where he played an integral part in the school's perfect 40-0 record and their 2005 prep national championship. Dozier averaged 14.4 points and 7.5 rebounds on a loaded squad that featured fellow Memphis teammates Antonio Anderson and Shawne Williams (Dallas Mavericks).

In the end Dozier re-committed to Memphis partly because of his relationship with the coaching staff but primarily due to the school's location close to family. Although Dozier is not labeled a troublemaker he's had his share of lumps with Calipari who, despite this, remains loyal to Dozier but stresses that the senior must be dedicated to the weight room this season.

Player Background
By Matthew Maurer
12/31/08

Young first caused heads to turn the summer of 2004 when he played AAU in the Las Vegas Showcase. His intensity, ability to score, and sheer athleticism made coaches take notice.

At Friendly High School in Maryland Young's team needed his size desperately, which often kept him away from the perimeter. Young topped off his senior year with a state title but academic problems prevented him from entering college. He spent a prep year at Hargrave Military Academy which proved to be an excellent move, as he became Scout.com's National Prep School Player of the Year after averaging 23 points and 11 rebounds per game. Although Young's recruiting was limited due to being undersized at power forward, his play catapulted him to a top 75 national ranking and garnered scholarship offers from Virginia Tech, Penn State, and Miami (FL) before he committed to Pittsburgh under head coach Jamie Dixon.

Over the past three years Young has gone from an undersized power forward with few fundamentals to a legitimate small forward prospect. His rise actually led some to speculate his early entry into 2008 NBA draft but he quickly informed everyone that he was staying for his final year. The winner of the Big East Conference's Most Improved Player of the Year award could finish his career among Pittsburgh's top 10 scorers depending upon his senior year performance.

Player Background
By Matthew Maurer
12/20/08

Nivins demonstrated great aptitude for the game of baseball growing up and dreamed of making it big in the major league. He perceived basketball as nothing more than a recreational sport to engage in after baseball season's end. That is until his high school freshman year when he decided to give basketball a try due in large part to a growth spurt and the support of his father. This made the transition to hoops a natural progression.

With his first year of organized ball under his belt Nivins proved to be a non-factor, but in his sophomore year he showed great promise. Due to luke warm competition Nivins soon transferred to basketball powerhouse St. Anthony where he learned under the tutelage of Coach Hurley. The move paid off as his play the following year at the ABCD camp earned the eyes of local schools Rutgers and Seton Hall. Before the start of his senior season Nivins ended his recruitment after an enjoyable visit to St. Joseph's sealed the deal. Nivins stated that head coach Phil Martelli made him feel very comfortable. The top 150 prospect averaged 15 points, 10 rebounds and 5 blocks per game before bowing out of the state tournament against rival high school St. Patrick's. Upon entering St. Joseph's Nivins slowly developed into a dependable low post threat after a modest freshman year where he earned all-rookie honors in the Atlantic-10 conference. His biggest obstacle is to develop a better presence on the boards and keep his intensity level and focus consistent.
